"How to you it, Dmitry Rogozin?" Kazakhstan has preferred Elon Musk


Astana has concluded the agreement with SpaceX corporation on start of the satellites. Why Kazakhs have chosen Falcon 9 instead of "Protons" and "Unions"? And what happens to the Russian space? Photo: Joe Skipper/Reuters Kazakhstan will launch two satellites the carrier rocket Falcon of the 9th American corporation SpaceX. Have officially reported about it in the Kazakhstan ministry of the defensive and space industry. Start will happen on November 20 from the American military base in California. Astana has specified that there is an opportunity to launch satellites and from Baikonur by means of Russian "Protons" and "Unions". But Falcon 9 was cheaper. Start cost in Kazakhstan was refused to be specified, having referred to a trade secret. Why friendly to us the country has chosen not Roskosmos, but SpaceX, the expert of space branch, the former designer of Sukhoi Design Bureau Vadim Lukashevich explains: Vadim Lukashevich the expert of space branch, the ex-designer of Sukhoi Design Bureau "Falcon now — one of the cheapest rockets, if not the cheapest rocket in the market of starting services. And the place of start — California or Baikonur — doesn't play any role. The start cost which includes in general everything is important for the owner of the satellite: both delivery of the satellite, and insurance, and preparation, and so on. Elon Musk with the Falcon does it cheaper, that's all. It is not the first satellite of Kazakhstan which is launched not on the Russian carrier. Simply it is the market, and all. Here it is important not that here Kazakhstan as as it can and as it behaves. Actually, here the main thing another — Russia even for Kazakhstan has stopped being commercially attractive. What was "Proton" good? "Proton" is our only carrier which provides a conclusion of satellites to a geostationary orbit, "Union" isn't able to make it. It was done by "Proton" with the combined block. There is no "proton" now de facto. What we said about that we win first place in the market of starting services, we have most of all starts in a year and other — this "bla-bla-bla" has come to an end. Moreover, we weren't ready to change of a market situation, we have got into a mess with one launch vehicles, but we haven't prepared to them replacement more modern, more perfect that now do China, the European Space Agency with the new Vega carrier that is done by Elon Musk. We have just missed a situation in principle, and it has turned out even — that old which were, "Proton" doesn't fly, and "Union" flies so that any insurer doesn't agree to insure him in principle, here what we have reached". Earlier mass media reported that the cost of missile launch of Falcon 9 is 62 million dollars while start of "Proton" — 65-70 million. The social network is expected have reacted to messages from Kazakhstan with a phrase: "How to you it, Dmitry Rogozin?" To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
