Russia has called the timing of a manned flight to the moon

In Russia decided on unmanned and manned flight of the astronauts on the moon. As stated by the head of Roscosmos Igor Komarov, “in 2028-2029 year we plan unmanned visit to the moon and landing a man — in 2029-2030 year”, reports TASS .

The official said that the Agency decided on the scheme of launching astronauts and payloads to the Earth, and also almost decided on the super-heavy launch vehicle manufacturer. “From super-heavy launch vehicle, we don’t refuse. We have identified the underlying potential contractor. We will continue to work in this direction”, — said Komarov.

Space tourism

Oddly enough, uzivanjem space now do not state more passionate about the military and scientific programs, and commercial enterprises. Transparent and their goal is to satisfy trivial human curiosity and to make money. In the near future flight into orbit would cost no more than a two-bedroom apartment. And perhaps less,

Commercial space flights to the ISS became a reality in the beginning of the new Millennium. Since 2001, the Federal space Agency jointly with the company Space Adventures has performed eight successful launches, sending into orbit seven people (American billionaire Charles Simonyi has been to space twice). Among already visited the ISS tourists the founder of the famous Cirque Du Soleil, guy laliberté, and in 2014 plans to go into space singer Sarah Brightman (she has become the second female space tourist, and was the first American of Iranian descent the Anusha Ansari). The pleasure of staying at the ISS for cheap, to put it mildly, not true — originally, it treated those wishing to see the space at $ 20 million but since 2007 this figure has grown and has reached $ 40-50 million Not so long ago became known the price of the spacewalk is $ 15 million but so far this “service” exists only in draft form, which will be implemented no earlier than 2015.

As we began to sell the dream

Once manned flight into space, no one could even imagine. World for mankind was limited to the planet Earth, but people constantly stared at the sky and tried to find answers about how our world and what is human in him. And let with each new step-opening, we received more questions than answers, but the thirst for knowledge never left us.

The first man in space was Yuri Gagarin. His famous “Go!” the whole world knows. But it became possible only thanks to the joint efforts of residents of large countries, countries that have chosen the path of communism. The reader may object to me putting in on the space race, the fact that the US (a capitalist country) quite a bit late on the moon and that they were the first.

So be it. But in the USA before it was not conducted military operations, from which a significant portion of the country lay in ruins. Therefore, you shouldn’t have neither the time nor the funds to restore infrastructure. And what about the irreparable loss of millions of lives and unborn children. The consequences are simply unimaginable number. However, the Soviet people were able not only to overcome all the difficulties in rebuilding the country, but also to win the space race. This is the greatest event in the history of mankind was made possible not only because of the work, funds or tenacity, these resources have capitalist countries. It became possible because of the belief that Bylaw people, the great goal for which there are no barriers in the universe. Continue reading
