When will Russia launch a shuttle missile?

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Oleg Larionov, owner of the Russian company Laros, announced that the first Russian shuttle rocket is likely to be launched in 2020.

Oleg Larionov told the TASS news agency that the shuttle will rise to 120-130 kilometers, then turn 180 degrees and its tail will land softly on the ground at zero speed with the help of engines. That is, “we will launch the rocket and turn it over and then use the same way Elon Musk, owner of the American company SpaceX to return it to the ground.”

The shuttle will be powered by hydrogen peroxide and aircraft kerosene. It will be the first single-stage shuttle rocket with a 500 kg engine.

It is noteworthy that Elon Musk highly praised the technology of missile industry in Russia, especially transport missile “Angara”, noting that Russia has excellent missiles and rocket engines are considered the best among the engines used.
