S7 Space, a member of the S7 Group of the spouses of Natalia and Vladislav Fileev, wants to buy from the state 36 rocket engines NK-33 and NK-43 built during the USSR. Whence the businessmen owning the bankrupt project "Sea Launch", will take such money, it is not absolutely clear.
The remaining major Russian carriers do not want to deal with this technology yet.
By November 2018, it is planned to deliver and assemble in the port of Long Beach in California a Zenit-3SL missile for the first launch from a floating spaceport.
The private company did not save Russian space from a series of setbacks: the satellite "Angosat" (AngoSat-1) was put into a calculated orbit, but after a while the connection with him disappeared.
The agreement between S7 Group and Yuzhmash on the supply of Zenith rockets raised questions.
Why the Russian businessman bought the floating cosmodrome "Sea Launch"?
