Greeting the readers of the channel!
Material, the topic of which about space and space technologies — I would advise you to read with musical accompaniment.
More recently, Russia launched the heavy rocket «Angara-A5» for the second time, which will also be used, and for the delivery of the Orel Spacecraft to the near-Obolong orbit, within the framework of the Russian Lunar Program in 2030. Well, sincerely, we wish our space branch of good luck in the development of the Moon. We hope that the program will be implemented. The last article was devoted to the American lunar program «Artemis». This program, far advanced. And today, I would like to discuss the super-thin rocket, which is created in the United States within this lunar program.
It will be about the «SLS» rocket — Space Launch System. The rocket is developing NASA. It will be used both for manned missions and to send automatic interplanetary stations. The rocket has become a technological continuation of a cooler program to create a carrier missile «ARES-5». This rocket was created as part of the «Constellation» program. The main engines were the «Space Shuttle» engines, solid fuel accelerators from shuttles will also be used. The development of this rocket is very criticized, but I will try to explain today, for what else goals, except for the lunar program, the super-step rocket «SLS» is being developed.
Of course, the development of a rocket, to some extent, is delayed and its first launch was transferred several times and, the next launch is scheduled for the end of 2021. But nevertheless, you need to understand the advantages that this program has. After all, this is a super-step rocket. And it becomes clear that in the future such rockets will be needed unequivocally. Moreover, the rocket is huge and can accommodate oversized heavy loads. Let’s say to deliver the cargo to the arrogant station or to Mars.
There is information that the speed of «SLS» can be increased to a huge with an increase in thrust. This will reduce cosmic flights. Thanks to the power of this rocket, as the developers declare, it will be possible to launch the devices immediately, directly, to the planets or satellites of the planets of the solar system. After all, before that, other American interplanetary probes, we recall, used gravitational maneuvers about the same Venus, land, Jupiter and Saturn, which attached them extra speed. And this is a huge breakthrough in the speed of delivery to remote cosmic bodies.
Already in NASA plans to deliver the Europa Clipper automatic station to Europe — Satellite of Jupiter. By the way, in this case, the power of this rocket will reduce the flight time to Europe from six to two and a half years. That is, there is a chance that scientific expeditions of automatic stations besides Titan — will be much faster. And it is very important. Therefore, this rocket will bring to mind, for sure. Moreover, countries such as Russia and China are already actively engaged in the design of their own super-phase missiles over several years.
At the moment, the United States does not have competitors in the field of space development, especially deep. So, now it becomes clear, why and, most importantly, where this rocket will be applied. Not only in the lunar program is definitely. It turns out that NASA makes himself hurt for future unmanned expeditions in the depths of the solar system. Therefore, Russia has long been time to start learning deep space, as the United States do. But without a superheasted rocket, it will be very difficult to do.
And today everything. Thank you for reading to the end. We are waiting for your reading of our new articles.
