MOSCOW, June 19. /TASS/. Roscosmos suggests that S7 transfers the Sea Launch floating platform to the government so that the state corporation becomes able to restore it, CEO of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin said in an interview with the Rossiya-24 TV Channel.
"We suggested another option, transferring this launch center to the government so that we find an opportunity later in Roscosmos to deal with its rehabilitation," Rogozin said.
The Sea Launch comprises the Odyssey floating launch platform and the command vessel. Its home port of call was Long Beach in California. S7 Group purchased it in 2016. In 2020, the Sea Launch sailed to a shipyard in the Russian Far East. The complex has launched 32 Zenit rockets earlier.
