Private Astronautics Center. Samara region is gaining weight

, held a visitation session. The event brought together the heads of the committees of science and education centers for aerospace, artificial intelligence, engine construction, as well as scientists, engineers and state companies leading.

Thanks to its rich potential, the Samara region could become a center for the development of commercial spaces in the foreseeable future.

The future belongs to private space

Currently, the scientific and educational center “ Engineering of the future '' includes unique science clusters from six major regions. Among them & mdash; Mordovia and Chuvashia, as well as the regions of Samara, Ulyanovsk, Tambov and Penza.

The core of the center & mdash; in the Samara region, traditionally considered the capital of the aerospace industry. REC projects are requested by larger companies interested in new developments. At MAKS-2021, these areas received additional development impetus.

Thus, the Deputy Director of the Department of Promising Programs and the Sphere Project GK Roskosmos & nbsp; Oksana Wolf stressed that the state-owned company is ready to continue to help promote the engineering initiatives of the future. in all the countries. At the same time, the expert also noted the projects of the private space industry.

Thanks to the support of the state-owned company, a roadmap has already been drawn up. It includes two major projects: a private astronautics business center and a space experiments center. Currently, work is underway on their step-by-step implementation.

In the large space & mdash; of school

General Manager of Stratonavtika (Moscow) & nbsp; Denis Efremov & nbsp; showed with a living example how schoolchildren are involved in scientific and practical activities. There is talk of a joint program with REC for the assembly of mini-satellites. In the Samara region on the basis of the quantorium “ Zhigulevskaya Valley '' are already training young space engineers. School children collect and write programs for spaceships. According to Denis Efremov, the guys successfully cope with this task. For example, in May this year, a satellite created by young engineers climbed into the stratosphere and then landed safely at the point of conception.

Training programs that use artificial intelligence innovations and capabilities are run by SPUTNIX, one of the residents of Skolkovo.

Meeting participants drew attention to the importance of research and development compliance with the needs of businesses and public companies. This is possible thanks to a multidisciplinary approach to education and bringing together teachers, scientists and students from all over the country.

Towards new perspectives

Of particular importance is the implementation of private space initiatives under modern conditions. And here the Samara region has a chance to become the center of the commercial space. This is the conclusion reached by the roundtable participants. This will notably be facilitated by the Private Astronautics Business Center, which is planned to be established on the basis of Engineering of the Future. A number of companies have already expressed interest in this topic.

“ Holding a three committee meeting at MAKS-2021 drew attention to the activities of REC & # 39; & # 39; Engineering of the Future & # 39; & # 39; at the federal level. We have already agreed on cooperation with potential partners. We have come with a trade mission and we are using every opportunity to attract investment, show the potential and scientific and educational capabilities of REC.

First of all, it creates conditions for innovative companies that are engaged in space development. For us, aerospace is an industrial specialization of the region. I really hope that today's discussion will allow us to jointly determine the set of skills and accompanying measures required by the state and regional authorities to that the idea of ​​establishing a private cosmonautic business center be implemented in the Samara region & # 39; & # 39 ;, & mdash; said the governor of Samara region Dmitry Azarov.


The hype didn't come out. Why Russia is not participating in the race for the rich in space

And & nbsp; wants, and & nbsp; spades

July 11 & nbsp; British & nbsp; Branson & nbsp; & mdash; 71-year-old creator of dozens of companies and & nbsp; record holder of & nbsp; flights on & nbsp; balloons & mdash; I saw the Earth from a height of 86 km. 57 year old American Bezos & nbsp; & mdash; owner of the internet empire Amazon and & nbsp; richest man in the world & mdash; delayed by & nbsp; of several days. But on July 20, he climbed for a few minutes in real space, above 100 km. Bezos sold the only free space on his ship for $ 28 million. The & nbsp; auction, which determined the name of the lucky one, brought together 7.6 thousand people from & nbsp; 159 countries. & Nbsp;

Russian company CosmoCourse planned to throw tourists even higher: to & nbsp; 180 km. A dollar billionaire also backed the idea, only from the Russian Forbes list. Several years ago, he expressed a wish to invest $ 150 million in space. But who is this person and how much he actually spent on & nbsp; is not known for sure. His project did not go beyond the drawings.

The official version of the closure of CosmoCourse & nbsp; & mdash; legal barriers that did not allow to coordinate the missile system with the & nbsp; Ministry of Defense and & nbsp; to obtain the authorization of the authorities to & nbsp; your cosmodrome in & nbsp; Nizhny Novgorod region. But the & nbsp; Virgin Galactic and & nbsp; Blue Origin, created by Branson and & nbsp; Bezos, also didn't work right away. The founder of the first went to & nbsp; his dream of 17 years, the second & nbsp; & mdash; 21. Virgin rocket plane testing twice resulted in crashes and the death of testers. Why are the richest people in the West going to the end and forcing people to speak about themselves with admiration, and our people are investing in the space anonymously like themselves? Were they embarrassed or even afraid of it?

“ Russian billionaires want to be like on Branson and Bezos … But for these owners, the space is & mdash; passion, childhood dream, and for our & mdash; football club type toy, & mdash; two different approaches are evaluated by an expert of the aerospace industry, associate professor of RANEPA Pavel Gribov … & mdash; A space project cannot be made for the hype, as they say now. It is a methodical, arduous and long process. Russian businessmen are not ready for this, but they want to try. Therefore, investments are not announced so as not to be embarrassed. At the same time, $ 150 million, which was to be invested in & bdquo; CosmoCourse & ldquo ;, & mdash; modest money, which is just enough to get started. & # 39; & # 39; & nbsp;

It's just not interesting

For power, of course, it's a shame: Russia has again lost leadership abroad in the field where it was a pioneer. But, if we put the emotions aside, is it worth worrying about? And & nbsp; if you are seriously worried then about & nbsp; what?

“ From a technical standpoint, the plans for Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin are not difficult. This is a repeat of the technologies tested 50-60 years ago, & nbsp; & mdash; notes the head of the Institute for Space Policy Ivan Moiseev . & nbsp; & mdash; If the tourist rocket and launch complex of & nbsp; were included in the state program for the creation of new technologies, so & bdquo; Roskosmos & ldquo; such a task would be accomplished. But the state is not interested in space tourism. To pay for a flight lasting one and a half hours, under & nbsp; obligate only a very rich person, who are few in & nbsp; our country.

Space tourism pioneers from abroad will sell tickets all over the world. Virgin Galactis has been reserving places on its ship for several years now. A ticket to weightlessness costs $ 200,000 to $ 250,000. 600 people have already bought it. Or only 600 people, considering that this number is not enough for the amortization of the project. Is there at least one tech company in & nbsp; Russia able to reach the & nbsp; global level and & nbsp; years waiting for the return of the money invested? Certainly not, according to business experts.

“ No one is going to compete with world stars like Brason, Bezos or Mask . Large private companies in Russia, in principle, have little interest in promoting technology in other countries, & mdash; Gribov notes. & mdash; Almost all of our Forbes list members earn money in the Russian market or use Russian raw materials. And hardly any of those who have gone overseas have created any well-known projects there. & # 39; & # 39; & Nbsp;

The climate here is different

Generally speaking, in order to participate in the private business-rulers race, you must first raise your own private businesses. And & nbsp; they do not grow in the & nbsp; Russian climate. Space in our country has been monopolized by the state since Soviet times. The industry employs no more than 30 non-state companies. These are small businesses that don't have a serious production base, and clearly they don't do the weather. “ A team that doesn't have its own workshops, machine tools, test benches cannot build a space complex. She will have to place orders with & bdquo; Progress & ldquo ;, the Center. Khrunichev and other state-owned enterprises, & nbsp; & mdash; said Moiseev.

CEO of CosmoKurs; Pavel Pushkin says: possible entrepreneurs of & nbsp; & laquo; Roscosmos & raquo; made it clear that they would slow down work on the rocket for tourists if a larger and more expensive state mission arrived. To avoid this risk, CosmoCourse was going to build its own factory. But in the & nbsp; Russian situation and & nbsp; this is manilovism. “ Is Putin authorized it? And & nbsp; who made your investor spend the money? & Raquo; & nbsp; & mdash; asked Pushkin to & nbsp; one of the & nbsp; meetings. Read between the lines: Without government approval and support, a visible space project is impossible.

The largest player in the private space sector in Russia & mdash; S7 Space, member of Vladislav Filev's aerospace group. It owns the Sea Launch floating spaceport, built in the 1990s by an international consortium that included our company Energia. In 2016, Filev bought Energia this platform for 150 million dollars, and now it is set up in Primorsky territory. To start the launches, & nbsp; S7 Space you have to build your own rocket and find customers. The state approves this plan, but so far it has not taken a single step forward.

“ We turned to the government today to bring certainty, & mdash; S7 Space CEO Yevgeny Yelin described the situation the other day. & mdash; If the state needs such an infrastructure & mdash; it should not be a museum, but for launches, & mdash; as they make us a proposition: when is it supposed to start, what is supposed to start. And make a deal on it. If there is no need, this is also an answer, then we will already act one way or another based on our own considerations. ' ; & # 39;

Which Russian space is losing

“ I hope one day our billionaire oligarchs start spending their money not on regular yachts and vanity fairs, but on the development of space technology and space knowledge and the raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; & mdash; after Branson leaked, Roscosmos boss tweeted Dmitry Rogozin. “ This is now out of the question, & nbsp; & mdash; of course Moiseev. & nbsp; & mdash; For entrepreneurs to invest in space, they need either direct benefits or gains from positive public relations. Foreign billionaires receive these gains, as bright space projects & nbsp; & mdash; part of their big tech business, including the airline, internet, or auto industry. And & nbsp; in Russia there are no companies of this scale and type, and & nbsp; & nbsp; incentives to create them from a private company either. Too much negative news is being generated by our space industry, which is in & nbsp; a prolonged seizure.

And & nbsp; ultimately, it's not bad that there aren't entrepreneurs with Russian names among Branson's competitors and & nbsp; Bezos, and & nbsp; that space services for businesses and the public are underdeveloped. For example, the Ministry of Agriculture receives images of crops for free, but agricultural companies do not use them because they cannot decipher them. Government structures cannot look to the end user of spatial information. And & nbsp; this is not possible without the participation of private companies. & # 39; & # 39;


What do we know about the murder of an eight-year-old schoolgirl in Sakhalin?

The examination of the criminal case into the fact of the rape and murder of eight-year-old Vika Teplyakova has ended in Sakhalin. The verdict of the defendants will be delivered by the Sakhalin Regional Court on Thursday, July 22.

What is the story of the rape and murder of a schoolgirl?

On July 6, 2020, eight-year-old Vika Teplyakova left her home in Novo-Aleksandrovsk. She was heading towards Dolinsk, where her friends lived. According to some media, the girl left home because of a family quarrel.

A car with a married couple pulled up next to Vika: a 49-year-old man and a 32-year-old woman. The couple offered to drive the girl to Dolinsk. However, instead, they took their victim to the forest, raped and strangled her.

In addition, the suspect Kristina Dvornikova said that her husband Igor was the initiator of the incident. According to her, at the time of the crime, the man, who was allegedly drunk, got his wife out of the car and threatened to murder her if she did not shut up. Dvornikova claims that she did not participate in the massacre of the child.

Dvornikov himself initially denied his guilt and claimed that he took the girl in a car that day, but he had it brought to the right place. After finding the evidence, the man pleaded guilty and indicated where he hid the body.

How did we learn of the girl's death?

The girl's body was found a week later on the bank of the river in the Kholmsky district. Law enforcement and over 500 volunteers were looking for her.

Police were able to obtain initial information on the incident thanks to motorists who provided recordings from VCRs. Thanks to the images received, it became clear that the missing child boarded a minibus with a married couple.

What punishment threatens the suspects?

Igor Dvornikov is on trial under six articles of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. For kidnapping, lewd acts, rape and murder of a child, he faces life imprisonment. His wife can be sentenced to 17 years in prison for inciting and covering up a crime.

It is known that the man has already been charged with the murder of two other people in 2001: a citizen of the PRC and an unknown woman. In 2018, he was also charged with the rape of another minor.


Until the first star. Army Marshals and Generals will be allowed to serve after 70 years

Russian President Vladimir Putin submitted to the State Duma a bill according to which it is possible to extend the period of military service for marshals, generals of the army and admirals of the fleet without restrictions. This is not the first increase in seniority for the military. discovered why senior officers are not allowed to retire.

According to Article 49 of the current Federal Law “ On Military Duty and Military Service '', for Marshal of the Russian Federation, General of the Army, Admiral of the fleet, colonel general, admiral, the age limit to serve is “dash;” 65 years. After the adoption of the addendum, the contract can be concluded for an indefinite period with military commanders having the rank of Marshal of the Russian Federation, General of the Army, Admiral of the Fleet for a duration fixed by decision of the President of Russia. Usually & mdash; for one year. Those with the military rank of Colonel General or Admiral can serve up to the age of 70. With the rest of the military you can make contracts until they reach the age of 65.

The explanatory note to this bill states that “ in some cases it becomes necessary to extend the contract with the most experienced and highly qualified military personnel with the rank of Marshal, General of the Army, Admiral of the Fleet, and after reaching the age limit. & # 39; & # 39;

It is curious that now there are no more Marshals in Russia, after the collapse of the USSR this title was only awarded only once & mdash; Igor Sergeyev in November 1997. He was the Commander-in-Chief of the Strategic Missile Forces, then & mdash; from 1997 to 2001 & mdash; Defense Minister. & nbsp;

Also remember that at the moment there are 5 senior officers in the armed forces of the Russian Federation, who can eventually serve for an unlimited period. These are Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu , who turned 66 this year, from Chief of Staff General Valery Gerasimov (65 years old), Deputy Defense Ministers Dmitry Bulgakov (this year he will be 67 years old) and Pavel Popov (64 years old), as well as Commander-in-Chief of the Land Forces Oleg Salyukov (recently 66).

The rank of Fleet Admiral is not currently held by current officers either, it was awarded in Russia in 1996 Felix Gromov , in 2000 Vladimir Kuroyedov and in 2006 Vladimir Masorin . & Nbsp;

Now the age limit for military service for Marshal of the Russian Federation, General of the Army, Admiral of the Fleet, Colonel General, Admiral & mdash; 65 years old, for lieutenant general, vice admiral, major general, rear admiral & mdash; 60 years, for the colonel, captain I rank & mdash; 55 years old, for a soldier with a different military rank, & mdash; 50 years.

For military women, the age limit for military service & mdash; 45 years, however in some cases a different age may be set.

In 2014, the maximum length of service for all military personnel was extended by 5 years. To raise their service age bar, State Duma deputies have already corrected the 49th and 53rd Articles of the Federal Law “ On Conscription and Military Service. & # 39; & # 39; & Nbsp;

At the same time, the age limit for the so-called vaults has changed, which, if necessary, form a second front for the army. Appeal under the banner of the 'reserve' soldiers and warrant officers, depending on their military specialty, can be between 35 and 50 years old. Junior officers & mdash; from 50 to 60 years, majors and lieutenant-colonels & mdash; from 55 to 60 years old. & nbsp;

For colonels in the era of 'H & # 39; & # 39; (the time of the start of the mobilization) set the upper bar at 50-65 years, for generals and marshals & mdash; at 65-70.

Former head of the Department of International Treaties of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Colonel-General Leonid Ivashov believes that the increased conditions of service for senior officers & mdash; a forced measure linked to errors in the personnel policy of the Ministry of Defense:

“ Previously, the focus was on young people, and as part of the overall personnel reform , massive cuts in senior management and senior officers were executed. However, it turned out that only people with a lot of experience can control the troops. Currently there aren't that many qualified managers. This process is now reversed. They can be called in to serve as a reserve general, especially if the situation demands it, for example, there is a need for a general mobilization. ''


The spacecraft with Bezos on board completed an 11-minute flight

The reusable New Shepard rocket, which is built and tested by Blue Origin, flew from a launch site in Texas with four crew members on board.
