Russian scientists design new generation of rocket engines

The development of the rocket engine of a new generation, RD-191, has been completed at Enterprise Energomash, the Russian Space Agency said Tuesday.

The message posted on the website of Roskosmos says that the engine has been delivered for tests within the structure of Angara booster rocket.

The message also says that scientists conduct research works on perspective projects of engines with the use of new schemes and components of fuel.

The enterprise also plans to take part in a new program connected with Vostochny spaceport, Interfax reports.

Angara is a booster rocket of new generation, based on the universal rocket module outfitted with oxygen-kerosene engine.

The family includes booster rockets from light to heavy class. The rocket has the unique cargo capacity from 1.5 to 25 tons, which opens new horizons in space exploration.
