Rososmos and Energia Started Development of Moon Rocket
September 29, 2016 15:17

The superheavy carrier is planned to be constructed within the Energia-Buran project in record time.
Roscosmos has began designing of a new superheavy rocket, the CEO of Rocket and Space Centre Energia, Vladimir Solntsev reported to Izvestia.
The carrier will be constructed within the Energia-Buran program and will use oxygen-kerosene fuel. It will replace the earlier planned Angara A5B with a hydrogen first stage. The design capacity of the new carrier, according to present estimates, will make it possible to put about 80 tons into the low reference orbit. In the long term the load-carrying capacity can be doubled.
"Jointly with the Roscosmos general designer on missile systems, Alexander Medvedev, we carry out study of a superheavy carrier of class with the use of the engine RD-171, which we already have — thus it provides the basis for the concept of a superheavy carrier... We want to take the third stage from the already flying Angara. Such compilation will enable us to save both time, and money. We take what there  already is, we do not incur additional costs and we do not go far away to the prospect of decades. I am sure that creation of a superheavy carrier according to this scheme is possible in record time — it is about five to seven years", - Mr. Solntsev informed.
According to the CEO of Energia RSC, the new rocket will become basic for implementation of the Russian lunar program. In its framework Roscosmos has already planned trial launches of the Federation spacecraft from the Vostochny spaceport in the early 2020s. The superheavy carrier is expected to have been constructed by 2025.
