Lunar split: Russia can leave the project of NASA and create the alternative lunar station


It was excluded by the head of Roskosmos Dmitry Rogozin. The reason of discontent of Moscow — too small part which is assigned by the USA in this project of Russia. However creation of the new program with the countries of BRICS won't be a lung, experts of the Photo say: NASA/Reuters the Head of Roskosmos Dmitry Rogozin has allowed creation of the alternative lunar station if Russia leaves the joint project with Americans. Now the countries agree about joint creation of the circumlunar scientific station Deep Space Gateway and can't agree. Dmitry Rogozin has said that Russia can't participate in this project on conditions which are laid down by the USA. But can offer the alternative project which Russia will be able to realize or independently, or with the friendly countries of BRICS. According to Rogozin, he intends to discuss it with the head of NASA Jim Brandeystayn at negotiations on Baikonur on October 11. Rogozin's statement looks quite logical, a question only in what will appear instead of this project, the editor-in-chief of the "kosmonavtiki Novosti" magazine academician of the Russian academy of astronautics of Tsiolkovsky Igor Marinin says: Igor Marinin the editor-in-chief of the "kosmonavtiki Novosti" magazine "Means, we have no interest and there are no means for participation in such project. Now we will think that we will do: we will continue operation of the segment of the ISS space station, whether we will do some lunar program, obletny for example, but by sharing the cost always problems are solved quicker. But as the policy interferes with the relations of the space agencies, this decision now, I would tell, political and economic, than expedient. Americans have suggested us to participate in this project, but haven't approved the project, haven't taken partners, haven't signed contracts with partners. Have offered us: well you can make? Well, give, make the lock-chamber, well for our space suits, and fly by the ship, but docking knots too it seems ours have to be, but all this in words. It doesn't suit us because it isn't enough for our industry. At us any other, probably, plans, but these plans aren't known so far, nobody announced. Our lunar program still officially doesn't exist". According to Igor Marinin, participation of Russia in the project of Americans looks really not really attractive so far. We will spend efforts and means more, than then we will get, he considers. The conflict has arisen because of too small part which the USA had assigned to the Russian colleagues in the project. Construction of the circumlunar station was planned to begin in 2022, and to finish in the 2016th. But it wasn't pleasant to the Russian side that to it have allowed to build only a compartment for extravehicular activity. At the same time parameters of a compartment have to correspond not to the Russian, but the American technical standards. Moreover, according to requirements of the American side the compartment has to be suitable for the American space suit. NASA considers that he is suitable for the Moon better. But negotiations continue. Rogozin's statement doesn't mean you yet
