On Friday, December 20th, the space carrier missile "Dnepr-1" bearing 6 satellites will be launched from the space port Baikonur /Kazakhstan/. The calculations for the launch of the missile have been prepared by the testing department of the space port headed by Colonel Vyacheslav Danilchuk, the press-service of the Russian Space Forces disclosed yesterday. "The calculations have been made with the support of the experts from the state bureau "Yuzhnoye", factory "Yuzhmash" /Dnepropetrovsk/, KBSM /Saint Petersburg/", the press service reported.
The space carrier missile "Dnepr-1" was created on the basis of the liquid propellant intercontinental ballistic missile PC-20 /according to the NATO classification - SS-18, "Satan"/, and its reliability index is 0.97, the Space Forces reported.
The space carrier will settle into the orbit 5 small foreign space devices /SD/ weighing 10-15 kg for connection and scientific purposes. These are Italian, Argentinean /2 SD/, Saudi Arabian and German satellites.
Moreover, the space carrier will also launch a life-size mock-up "Trail Blazer", manufactured in Russia. The mock-up is aimed at the development of the method of orbiting heavy payloads. It is planned in the next year to settle into the flight orbit to the Moon a real large-sized SD by means of the space carrier missile "Dnepr-1", the Space Forces reported.
The discovery of the submarine has unveiled a few "inconsistencies." For example, how can one explain the fact that the sub was found where it needed to be searched for from the start?
This problem is not limited to the situation with the "whale prison" in Russia's Far East, because many people buy tickets to go to oceanariums and turn a blind eye to the problem
