The Russian spacecraft


    Before starting to write this, I have a question to ask from you. Can you imagine what I am expecting to ask from you? That is not a very difficult question. What are the things that you are capable of making? List them down. When your list is ok, then read the other part. You can make something like cakes, juices or some other things. But can you make a spacecraft your own? I am sure that you can’t make it alone.

As you know, this is a big task. Either one person can’t make a spacecraft alone. There should be a group of engineers with very improved minds. And this task takes much more time as two or three years. It can be expanded up to four-five of more than that. This has to be done in slowly and calmly. 

    We all know that NASA and the Spacex are the main companies through this spacecraft field. Ans as well as that they are making reusable space vehicles in order to minimise the production cost. But today I am expecting to tell you about a new project by Russia. Actually, it is a project by Russian military service. Now we will see about it. 

 Russian space mission

   This spacecraft released to the sky on the 25th of November 2019. It means the spacecraft launched to the sky a few days ago. This is not the first spacecraft by Russia. There is another spacecraft. Soyuz – 2. 1vis that rocket. First of all, we have to know about the details of the Russian military service. Because we always talked about the other spacecraft companies than Russian space companies. 

   Russian military service

      The armed forces of the Russian Federation are known as the Russian Armed Forces. This was founded on the 7th of May 1992. This is one of the world’s largest military service as well as that this is the second most powerful military and the world’s second-largest arms exporter. Ground forces, aerospace forces and the Navy are the three services under the Russian Military Service. 

  When talking about the military system of Russia, nuclear weapons are unforgettable. Russia’s Strategic Rocket Forces control land-based nuclear warheads. Navy controls the submarine-based missiles and the Air Force the air-launched warheads. The commander in chief of the Armed forces is the president of Russia. 

 This above is the most significant features of the Russian military service. Now we will turn towards your main topic. You know that we are talking about the Soyuz – 2. one rocket. Now we can start that. 

 Russian military service recently mission

     As you know that this was launched on the 25th of November 2019. This was used for military purposes. This is the vehicle that launched the satellite to the orbit. The place that launched this is 500 miles about the north of Moscow. There is another spacecraft by the Russian government. The name of this spacecraft is not revealed yet as well as that this is the fifth time of launching a Soyuz spacecraft. This is the next rocket after the Soyuz – U rocket. 

  “The spacecraft…….. is launched into the target orbit from which the state of domestic satellites can be monitored “said by the ministry. “the optical equipment of the spacecraft also allows you to take pictures of the Earth’s surface.”

    Now we can see a detailed description of the Soyuz – 2.1 v. 

Soyuz – 2.1v

  This is a type of Russian expendable carrier rocket. This is TsSKB progress as well as that this is a light carrier rocket. As you know this is a Russian production. This is 44 meters in height, 3 meters in the diameters and 158,000 kilograms in the mass. 

 The first flight was launched on the 28th of December 2013, and the last flight is the 25th of November 2019. 

 Now we will see the structure of this space vehicle. 

 It has four boosters that are using another R-7 vehicle. There is NK 33 engine in this spacecraft. This used to supply thrust vector control. It also supplies an extra 230.5 kilonewtons of thrust. The second spacecraft of Soyuz – 2.1 v is the same as the third stage of the Soyuz – 2-1b. This can be known as a light class carrier rocket. 

  Now I would like to look back on the future of these spacecraft missions. 

  •     In 2009 the first flight of Soyuz was announced. That is scheduled for 2010.
  •     But that later postponed to 2011and then to 2012. 
  •     In 2011 it was scheduled later in 2012. 
  •     And in August of 2012, the Prototypes was tested. In here the test stand software malfunctioned. 
  •     In May 2013 the test was rearranged
  •     The test was scheduled for the September 2013 then it was postponed to November and December. 
  •     Another launch took place on the 5th of December 2015.
  •     The fourth flight of this space vehicle is on the 29th of March 2018.
  •     The fifth6 flight takes place on the 10th of July 2019. 
  •     Then the last flight takes place on the 25th of November of 2019 as well as that the flight used the Volga upper stage. 

 As mentioned above, this is not the first space vehicle by Russia. Now I’d like to tell you about another significant spacecraft by Russia. It is Soyuz – 2. Earlier we talked about the Soyuz-2.


    As you know, this is a Russian product. This functioned as an orbital carrier product. As in the above, this is also a TsSKB’ s manufacturing. This is a three-stage carrier rocket. The upper stage of this vehicle can be used to lift payloads to higher orbits. The Soyuz-2 is not alone. There are some other spacecraft too. And Kourou Soyuz-2 always mated with ST type fairing. This is called as Soyuz ST and Soyuz STK. 

 On the 8th of November 2004, the rocket was launched. Then on the 17th of July 2006, the first attempt if launching happened. And after that, the other launch happened on the 19th of October 2016. This spacecraft tested 94 launches altogether and out of that 94 87 was succeed. 

 Through the above description, I said about two spacecraft by Russia. But those are designed for military purposes as well as that these are productions under the Soyuz programme. At last, I can say that we can expect another more such investigations in the future.
