    Member of the Scientific Committee of the Challenge Prize Paevsky commented on the launch of Angara

    On April 11, the Angara-A5 heavy launch vehicle successfully launched from the Vostochny Cosmodrome. Member of the Scientific Committee of the Challenge Prize, scientific journalist, special representative of the Decade of Science and Technology in Russia Alexey Paevsky shared a comment from the scene.

    “This is an important milestone both in the development of astronautics and in all domestic science. The Angara-A5 heavy rocket will replace the Proton-M as it is more environmentally friendly, does not use toxic fuel components, and will allow us to launch heavy vehicles, including modules of the future Russian orbital station,” said Alexey Paevsky.

    The launch of modules of the Russian Orbital Station (ROS) will be one of the main tasks that will be carried out using Angara flights from the Vostochny Cosmodrome. According to Alexey Paevsky, ROS will fly in a polar orbit, thanks to it it will be possible to see most of the territory of Russia, and it will also allow various scientific experiments to be carried out in space.

    Alexey Paevsky monitored the events from a special observation post at a distance of just over 3 km from the missile itself. This is a safe distance for observing a heavy-class missile, which is the Angara. The launch was postponed twice – it was stopped by automation. Alexey Paevsky, citing the words of the head of Roscosmos Yuri Borisov, said that such transfers are absolutely normal.

    “We are at the testing stage of both the rocket itself and the new Amur launch complex. It should be noted that the Angara was launched in a fully automatic mode. The fact that we have such smart automation that detects the slightest problems and stops the launch just a couple of minutes before the start suggests that our technologies are at a very high level. This allows you not to lose rocket after rocket, as, for example, during tests of SpaceX’s Starship, but to identify malfunctions and promptly fix them for its subsequent successful launch,” commented Alexey Paevsky.

    Space has always been a field that tests the latest technologies and materials, and also contributes to the development of a number of scientific fields. In order to make scientific discoveries and scientists symbols of success in modern Russia, as well as create conditions for the practical implementation of future technologies, the National Prize in the field of future technologies “Challenge” was established in 2023.

    National The Challenge Future Technology Prize is timed to coincide with the Decade of Science and Technology announced in 2022 and is designed to recognize breakthrough ideas and inventions that are changing the landscape of modern science and the lives of every person. The founder of the award is the Foundation for the Development of Scientific and Cultural Relations “Challenge” together with Gazprombank. The partners are the state corporation Rosatom, the Roscongress Foundation, with the support of the Moscow Government.
