Bulgaria: Russian Space Firm Unveils Scheme of Crewed Flight to Moon

/TASS/. Russia’s Energia Space Rocket Corporation unveiled its scheme of a flight to the Moon with the subsequent landing of cosmonauts on the Earth’s natural satellite.

The scheme was presented at the readings on cosmonautics devoted to Soviet Rocket Designer Sergei Korolyov.

As the presentation suggests, the Federatsiya (Federation) promising spacecraft and the lunar take-off and landing module will be launched to the Moon separately. For this purpose, Angara heavy carrier rockets are expected to be used.

The take-off and landing module will be the first to be launched. The module is expected to reach the near-Moon orbit (at an altitude of about 100 km) to wait for the arrival of the Federatsiya spacecraft. As Energia employee Andrei Bychkov explained at the Korolyov readings, the waiting time may take six months.
