New Spaceship And Launch Vehicle The Foundation Of Russian Space Program RIA Novosti

Russia’s position as a leading space power is not only based on the number of successful space flights, but also on its ability to make long-term plans in this field, which is impossible without the continued development of new technology. Today, this is seen in the beginning of test flights and the continued development of new launch vehicles and spaceships. This is the main component of the national space program for the next decades. An example of this is Samara-based Progress Space Center’s Soyuz-2-Rus rocket, which will have its first test flight on October 29, as well as the Kliper shuttle spacecraft which was included in Russia’s 2005-2025 Federal Space Program.
