Roskosmos disproved messages about preservation of the ISS after accident of "Union". Whether it and what it threatens with is possible?


Failure of system of regular division of the first and second steps of the carrier could become a cause of accident. Besides, in MKB "Spark" told as well as why the automatic system of rescue of crew of the Photo worked: Sergey of Savostyanov/TASS Accident at start of "Union" from Baikonur happened on the site of work of the second missile stage after dumping of the propulsion system of system of emergency rescue. It was told journalists by the deputy chief designer for the space equipment of MKB "Spark" Victor Volchkov. At the same time the system of rescue of crew worked automatically. "DU SAS is dumped on the 114th second. On the site after dumping DU SAS and until office of the head fairing carries out a task of withdrawal of the ship with astronauts from the emergency carrier the rocket engine of the head fairing. On October 11 just the emergency occurred at work of the second step when already DU SAS it was dumped, and the head fairing still was on a rocket. Therefore the system worked automatically" — he told. The day before in Roskosmos told about a possible cause of accident. At division of the first and second steps of the carrier allegedly there was a collision of elements. The reason, perhaps, that the system of regular division did not work. Results of investigation will announce to the 20th of October. Roskosmos also denied information on creation of a special subcommittee which purpose — preservation of the International Space Station after accident at start of the carrier rocket "Union-FG". The press service of state corporation noted that speculation and conjectures in this respect only harms investigation. Before RIA Novosti with reference to a source reported that the group which studies a possibility of preservation of the ISS is allegedly created. Whether can theoretically there be a speech about this process now? The research supervisor of Institute of space policy Ivan Moiseyev answers: — Americans consider this question now. Really, probability that two accidents in a row, it is improbable, but it is impossible to exclude it. As preservation never happened earlier, at least it is just necessary to make the action plan for preservation. Perhaps, at us are also engaged in it, but only not this commission that is logical. The commission deals with accident, but not with the fate of the ISS. — What is preservation fraught with? — It is difficult operation. It is necessary to switch-off many devices that it did not influence work of the station. To transfer some actions to the automatic mode, to provide possible troubles which we had, for example, with "Salute-7", all the known history. As at the station there is a lot of this equipment and never before it became, all this should be fulfilled. — Whether it will mean that we will leave space? — Right now not. While the ISS flies, we will make the piloted flights to it. And after it will finish the work, and it is 2024 officially, but now incline to version 2028th, but it is not officially accepted, the piloted program should be closed. — The probability such is what will be preserved? — From -
