Super-heavy rocket
As was reported earlier, Roscosmos has placed an order for developing the design of a super-heavy rocket worth 1.6 billion rubles ($25 million). The conceptual design of the super-heavy space rocket complex is planned to be completed by October 31, 2019.
The new Russian super-heavy carrier rocket is intended to deliver over 70 tonnes of cargo into low near-Earth orbit. The construction of infrastructure for the new carrier rocket is expected to begin at the Vostochny spaceport in the Russian Far East in 2026.
The decree on creating the space rocket compound at the Vostochny cosmodrome was earlier signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin. The concept of its creation envisages maximally utilizing the accumulated potential. Also, basic elements and technologies of the Soyuz-5 medium-class rocket currently under development will be used to create the super-heavy launch vehicle.
According to Roscosmos’s estimates, the creation of the super-heavy carrier rocket and the construction of the corresponding infrastructure will cost 1.5 trillion rubles ($24 billion).
