Photo: Sergey Dmitry Rogozin told Savostyanov/TASS in an interview to the program "Moscow. Kremlin. Putin" on Russia 1 channel about the reasons of unsuccessful starts of space rockets. "Any equipment glitches sooner or later" — the head of Roskosmos said. According to him, "Union" — very reliable rocket, and accidents with it correspond to statistics of reliability. Commenting on autumn accident of "Union-FG" when the astronaut Alexey Ovchinin and the astronaut a NASA Nickname Haig were evacuated in the rescue capsule to Earth, Rogozin noted that it was the first state of emergency at start of the domestic piloted ship in 35 years. However accidents of unmanned "Unions" was much more, the research supervisor of Institute of space policy Ivan Moiseyev says: Ivan Moiseyev the research supervisor of Institute of space policy "Is some slyness here that the rocket "Union" has higher accident rate, than average, for working rockets. Everything depends on what selection to take. It is possible to choose one case and only about it and to speak. Actually for the last five years we had five accidents, three of them "Union", two — "Proton". Such rockets require very high reliability at least because they are very long operated, all mistakes which were made by designers and technologists have to be already corrected. It did not occur. If to take working rockets, then we can look, how are you are in other countries. The last accident Europeans — 2002, at Americans have 1998. At China statistics is slightly worse, but it because they intensively develop new rockets. So reliability problem such balancing act cannot be removed in any way, it exists, and all this is seen, all understand. It is attempt to somehow justify a situation". The next start of the piloted ship from Baikonur on the International Space Station was postponed from 1 to March 14, reported a source of Interfax. Russian Alexey Ovchinin and American Nick Haig who did not reach on "the Union of MS-10" the ISS in October and also American Christina Cook will enter into crew of "the Union of MS-12". Earlier the prime minister Dmitry Medvedev criticized the management of Roskosmos. "It is necessary to finish with daydreaming, stop talking about where we will depart in 2030, it is necessary to work, to say less and to do more" — the head of the government told.
