ROSCOSMOS Future Space Missions

Roscosmos or Russian Federal Space Agency was founded after the dissolution  of Soviet Space Program in 1991. Russian space agency is one of the  space pioneers along with NASA. They are the first agency to launch a  satellite in space called a Sputnik one. They are the first agency to have a  man in space: Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. After its transformation from the  Soviet space program into Roscosmos, they have launched even more ambitious missions. They are one of the prominent contributors  to the international space station or ISS. In 2012 they launched 95 satellites  which was a record launch at that time. Hello Everyone I am Varun and in this episode we are going to explore and find out  future Roscosmos space missions. So without further do. Let’s get started Luna 25 is a planned lunar lander mission  by the Russian federal space agency. It is the successor of luna 24 which  was launched 44 years back in 1976. It is going to land on the south pole  of the moon the objective of the mission is to land on the moon and to demonstrate  the landing technology of Roscosmos. The mission will carry 30 kilos of  the scientific instrument including a robotic arm for soil samples  and possible drilling hardware. The mission is currently planned for  October 2021 on Soyuz 2.1 b rocket it is going to be launched from the  Baikonur launch site in Kazakistan. Venera D is a proposed Russian  space mission to Venus. It is going to include an orbiter and a lander. The mission is going to be  launched between 2026 and 2030. The primary objective of the mission is to  perform observation with the use of radar. The lander is going to operate on  venus surface for around 3 hours. It will gather various data which would be important to gather information  about the atmosphere of venus. The mission is scheduled to be launched  using proton or Angara a5 rocket Exomars is an astrobiological  program by European space agency and Roscosmos or Russian federal space agency. The goals of Exomars are to search for signs of past life on mars and to investigate about  martian water and geochemical environment. The mission is going to return a mass sample of mars to investigate atmospheric  trace gases and their sources. The launch vehicle and instrument packages  are going to be provided by Roscosmos while Exomars Trace gas orbiter is  provided by the European space agency. The duration of the mission is 6 months 11 days and will be operated and  launched using proton rocket. These are some space missions  Roscosmos have planned in next decade. Roscosmos is generally going to focus  on luna missions rather than focusing on interstellar missions or  voyages around other planets. All the missions in the next decade are  going to be the successor to luna 25 Make sure to Subscribe and Ring the bell icon,  so you get notified each time a new video is up.
