Reports vary about failed Russian Mars probe’s reentry time RIA Novosti

Doomed Russian Phobos-Grunt Mars probe that’s been stuck in Earth orbit for two months may finally come crashing down on January 15 over the Pasific Ocean, Russia’s space agency Roscosmos said on Saturday.
Roscosmos said the spacecraft will fall within the eight-hour interval starting from 18:36 on Sunday Moscow time [14:36 GMT] to 2:24 on Monday [22:24 Sunday GMT]. The possible scatter zone is 51.4 degrees North latitude to 51.4 degrees South latitude.
As of 20.30 Saturday, the spacecraft was moving in the near-Earth orbit with an altitude that varied between 144.6 km at perigee and 167.1 km at apogee, the Russian space agency said.
According to the latest report from the U.S. Strategic Command, the failed probe would hit Earth’s atmosphere between 17:26 Moscow time Sunday [13:26] and 03:02 Moscow time Monday [23:02 Sunday GMT]. It puts the altitude at between 138.1 km at perigee and 160.2 km at apogee.

Russia’s Phobos-Grunt spacecraft bound for Mars and stuck in an orbit around Earth will fall in southwestern Afghanistan on January 14, the U.S. Strategic Command said on Monday.
Phobos-Grunt, Russia’s most ambitious planetary mission in decades, was launched on November 9 but it was lost due to propulsion failure and is expected to fall back to Earth next month.

Russia plans flight to Mars and development of space tourism RIA Novosti

Russia will start an experimental program for preparation for flights to Mars in 2006, said Anatoly Perminov, head of the Russian Space Agency Roscosmos. “The agency is not planning a manned flight to Mars until 2015, although we will start an experimental program at the Institute of Medical and Biological Research next year,” he told the Voice of Russia state-controlled radio station. “An international six-men crew will conduct a simulated 500-day flight to Mars.”

Flying To Mars From Moscow RIA Novosti

While talking to journalists about Russia’s view on manned projects in deep space, Anatoly Perminov, the director of the Federal Space Agency, said at a recent space summit in Montreal that nothing would be possible without all the interested parties conducting joint work on flying to planets first from Earth, then the ISS and finally the Moon. While speaking about the Russian space industry’s plans to send a manned expedition to Mars in an exclusive RIA Novosti interview, Mr. Perminov highlighted a unique Russian experiment, Mars-500. This experiment will involve specialists and scientists, both direct participants and observers, who will try to create the conditions of a space journey lasting nearly two years here on Earth.

Non-Landing Flight To Mars Possible By 2014 RIA Novosti

Given sufficient funding, Russian cosmonautics can by 2014 manage an orbital flight to Mars without landing. Physician cosmonaut Valeri Polyakov, who set a record in the duration of space flight, said so at the press conference on the publication of the book World Manned Cosmonautics. To him, in 2018-2020 Russian cosmonautics will be ready to perform a Martian mission with landing. “But only if there is sufficient financing and cooperation with other countries of Europe”, the cosmonaut said.

Reflected Light To Save Earth From Natural Disasters RIA Novosti

This spring two Russian satellites will be orbited with the task of blocking natural disasters and lighting certain spots on the Earth’s surface. They will use the simple method of reflected light from thin-filmed space reflectors, writes Moskovsky Komsomolets. According to Aerospace Systems, thin-filmed reflectors are a kind of a sail made of modern materials that feel like a mixture of foil and cellophane. The most difficult task is to open the 25m sail in space. It is believed that the miracle sail will be able to correct weather, sending reflected light and warming the clouds to ensure good weather for a football match, for example.

Women To Participate In Imitation Of A Flight To Mars RIA Novosti

Women will participate in a ground-based imitation of a flight to Mars “500 days,” announced head of the Federal Space Agency (Roskosmos) Anatoly Perminov, sharing the plans of his agency for the next year. “The imitation is going to be more attractive than any of the currently popular reality shows. Six people, men and women, will participate in the experiment that will last for a year and a half. I will tell you about the details of the experiment at the end of January,” he said.

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.

Russian Space Parachute Tests Planned For September RIA Novosti

The Lavochkin Scientific-Industrial Association plans to test the space parachute Demonstrator-2 in September, 2004. It is designed for the return from orbit of large loads, weighting up to dozens of tons. Such a return costs less that other versions. This technical device can be used not only for the return of cargoes but also the evacuation of the ISS crew and landing on other planets.
