The head of Roscosmos told about the characteristics of missiles for missions to the moon

The head of state Corporation “Roscosmos” Dmitry Rogozin show and tell of the delegation of representatives of the heads of space agencies of foreign countries, who visited the Russian control Centre of space flights in the Queen on what launch vehicles will be used by Russia for flights to the moon. “Roscosmos” has published on its YouTube channel a video where Rogozin shows silhouettes of future missiles and their main characteristics.

According to earlier information, went to Russian media “Roskosmos” is working on two versions of the super-heavy class carrier. One of them is “Enisey”. This media in the future will be able to output in low earth orbit (Leo) payload weighing from 88 to 103 tons. To the moon the rocket will be able to deliver the cargo weighing from 20 to 27 tons. The second missile is the “don” that represents the more powerful version of “Enisey”. The orbit of the earth “don” will be able to withdraw 125-130 tons, and to the moon — 32 tons.

According to more recent information, which is shown in the video of “Roscosmos”, the first rocket will have a launch mass of 3167 tons and can cashout on NOO a weight of not less than 100 tons. In geostationary orbit, the rocket will be able to deliver 27 tons of payload to the moon is 27 tons. Starting weight more potent second rocket will be 3281 ton. The media will be able to deliver on the DOE 140 tons of payload to geostationary – 29.5 tons, and to the moon – 33 tons.

According to available information, in the future, payloads for rockets “Yenisei” and “don” will be manned transport spacecraft “Federation” weighing 20 tons, which “Roscosmos” plans to use to fly to the moon, and the lunar landing-take-off complex with a mass of 27 tons and a module of a lunar base with a mass of 27 to 32 tons.

In addition, the carriers plan to use for output to the geostationary earth orbit spacecraft based on transport-energy module with a mass of 26-30 tons, as well as space telescopes weighing 30-40 tons for deep space exploration. They are planned to be placed in the Lagrangian point L2 of the system Sun-Earth (it is a space where balanced gravitational force of the Sun and Earth).

The final appearance of super heavy Russian rocket, as well as all the technical characteristics should be presented in November 2019. According to experts Roscosmos, the creation of super-heavy launch will cost about 1.2 trillion rubles. The first launch of the carrier “Yenisei river” is expected in 2027. It will take place from the cosmodrome “East”. The first flight of the “Dona” is supposed to take place in 2029.
