MOSCOW, October 7 (Itar-Tass) — The Federal Space Agency (Roskosmos) decided to abandon the development of a promising booster Rus-M, Roskosmos chief Vladimir Popovkin said at a question-and-answer governmental session in the State Duma on Friday.
“We do not need a new rocket, we will use those that we have,” he said.
Popovkin elaborated that more than 37% of Roskosmos budget was allocated to develop a launch vehicle by 2015, however, these funds are very small, “so, the launch of a new booster in 2015 is not in question.”
