Yo Elon – u mad bro?
I know a lot of people whine about me being a Russiaboo.
But the thing is, Russia always does exactly what I am thinking needs to be done.
I mean, I never even expected an attack on my enemy Elon Musk, but here it is.
It is going to be so great if they are able to expose this smarmy TED faggot by WINNING IN SPACE.
Russia’s privately-owned S7 Group plans to conquer the niche space launch market and compete with the likes of SpaceX after purchasing the Sea Launch complex, a mobile maritime platform that halted operations two years ago.
The agreement between S7 and the Sea Launch Group was signed Tuesday at the International Astronautical Congress in Guadalajara, Mexico. The assets purchased by S7 include the Sea Launch Commander vessel and the Odyssey Launch Platform, in addition to various pieces of support equipment and a port facility in Long Beach, California.
Once the ownership exchange process has been completed, the largest private aviation holding company in Russia plans to use the brain power behind the Russian space program and has signed a separate contract with Russian space corporation “ RSC Energia” to resuscitate the Sea Launch complex’s delivery capabilities.
After the deal is sealed S7 hopes to restart space launches in 18 months, sometime in late 2018.
“We expect to be able to perform up to 70 launches within 15 years without making any major investments in upgrades to the Sea Launch complex. Our business approach is radically different from what you see at many companies: we will not sell promises, we will sell launches only when our launch vehicles are ready to take to the atmosphere,” said Vladislav Filev, CEO of S7 Group.
He says this as the TED fag is saying he’s going to build a city on Mars, lol.
The hilarious part is this is going to prompt the US government to demand more taxpayer money be poured into Elon’s scams.
Throughout the Sea Launch company’s history, the enterprise offered some of the lowest-cost solutions for delivering cargo into space. Because it is launched from the Pacific Ocean, rockets can be fired from an optimum position on the Earth’s surface, maximizing the payload capacity while reducing launch costs compared to land-based systems.
The company quickly established a multi-step process for space deliveries. First, the launcher and its payload are assembled on a purpose-built ship, Sea Launch Commander, in Long Beach, California. Then the rocket and the cargo are positioned on top of the self-propelled platform, Ocean Odyssey, and towed to the equatorial Pacific Ocean for launch. The Sea Launch Commander serves as the command center. All Sea Launch missions have used the custom-designed three-stage Zenit-3SL launch vehicle, capable of placing up to 6,000 kg (13,000 lb) of payload into geosynchronous transfer orbit.
Announcing the deal S7 CEO confirmed that Zenit rocket will remain the driving force for the next 15-20 launches in a $160 million project. Filev also expressed his strong belief in the profitability of the business venture.
“There is a multi-year waiting list for launches, so we believe that our service will be in demand,” Filev told Bloomberg.
With the reemergence of the Sea Launch complex as a strong market player, the company has set itself up as a candidate which could potentially capture a portion of the market now controlled by Elon Musk’s Space Exploration Technologies Corp and SpaceX Falcon 9 launches, which completed its first landing on a sea platform earlier this year.
My hate for Musk is only surpassed by my hate for the likes of Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan.
He is basically the corporate version of a cuckservative, hoaxing well-meaning people into believing in his faked agenda.
It will be very helpful if he gets BTFO by cosmonauts.
