Media gave the details about the Russian tourist kosmoport


The Russia's first private spaceport, according to RIA Novosti, can appear in Tatarstan or the Nizhny Novgorod Region. The Kosmokurs company of the Photo is engaged in the project: depositphotos.com In Tatarstan, perhaps, will construct the Russia's first private spaceport from where will send tourists into Earth orbit. With reference to a source RIA Novosti reports about it. The Kosmokurs company which obtained the license of Roskosmos earlier and began to develop the one-stage returned rocket and the seven-seater spaceship is engaged in the project. Now there are negotiations on allocation of the earth under construction of the spaceport in Tatarstan. Other option — the Nizhny Novgorod Region. As expected, the first flight will be made in 2025. It will last 15 minutes, tourists will be in zero gravity about five minutes. The cost of the ticket will be about 200-250 thousand dollars. The research supervisor of Institute of space policy Ivan Moiseyev argues on the Kosmokursa project: Ivan Moiseyev the research supervisor of Institute of space policy "The fact that offers "Kosmokurs" is a rocket for vertical start, somewhat it is not a space rocket: it does not orbit, and such rocket can be launched from any point of Earth. Took the sum of "Kosmokurs" from the American price tag, all have an identical price — 250 thousand for flight. But it is very improbable that in Russia there will be many people capable to pay 250 thousand dollars for rise on height of 100 kilometers. They in general in the world are not enough. Therefore such spaceport should be built, probably, near this rich man". First-ever private космопорт in 2010 the Virgin Galactic company of Richard Branson in the State of New Mexico opened. The businessman for the same 250 thousand dollars promised five-six minutes of zero gravity. However, the first successful flight made the tourist SpaceShipTwo ship only in December of last year, and tourists on it were not though tickets got more than 300 people in advance. All of them still wait for flight, but so far it is too risky. Four years before the Virgin Galactic ship was wrecked in Mojave Desert: one of pilots died, and the second suffered serious injuries.
