MOSCOW, August 5 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin says uniting the space and aircraft building industries demanded.
“I consider as demanded the idea to discuss uniting in the framework of a single technical policy what is being done in the space industry and in the aircraft building industry,” he told the commission investigating into reasons of the accident with Proton-M carrier, which occurred on July 2 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome.
The Deputy Prime Minister said the limits of aviation had been growing lately.
“Quite probably, we shall see apparatuses and systems, which work both in near space and in the air,” he said. “Thus, if we are speaking now about different measures in the aviation, in the space, why not use the chance now.”
Rogozin said considering organization of a rocket-space corporation, it would be necessary “to outline its geography of responsibilities.”
The idea to unite the space and aviation industries in the Russian Federation is not new: predecessor of Roskosmos /founded in March 2004/ was the Russian aviation-space agency /Rosaviakosmos/, which had been organized from the Russian space agency in May 1999.
