Russia plans to create a returnable reusable launch vehicle


In Russia, it is planned to create a returnable reusable launch vehicle and launch it in 2020. This was said by the owner of the company Laros, which is engaged in the development of rockets, Oleg Larionov.

“We plan to launch a suborbital launch vehicle in 2020. This rocket will be launched at a height of 120-130 kilometers and is needed for testing the so-called dynamic landing, ”he told TASS.

According to him, it is planned to “launch a rocket, deploy it and land”, as the company Elon Mask SpaceX does.

Larionov added that a 17-meter rocket could be launched from a heavy-duty car trailer.

It is planned to use electric pumps for pumping fuel under zero gravity conditions.

In February, the head of SpaceX, Elon Musk, announced the superiority of the Raptor engine, which is supposed to be used in the BFR project, over the Russian RD-180 engine.

Corresponding member of the Tsiolkovsky Russian Academy of Cosmonautics, Andrei Ionin, in an interview with the NSN, commented on Mask’s statement.
