The author of the “Time Forward!” Project told about this in social networks. According to him, several of the most anticipated events of the year happened almost simultaneously.
Evgeny Super, video reviewer:
Over the 8 years of our project’s existence, there has never been a week like the past, when Russia presented its technological potential so widely.One of them was expected for 6 years – this is the second launch of the Angara-A5 heavy-class rocket, which consisted entirely of domestic components. (The first was in 2014). Such rockets can be launched from the universal launch complex, which is being created at the Vostochny cosmodrome. December 15, 2023 “Angara” is to deliver our new spacecraft “Eagle” to the Moon.
Another event – the first flight of the domestic aircraft MS-21 with the new Russian PD-14 engine… This is the first turbofan aircraft engine created in our country since the collapse of the USSR. Lightweight, powerful, economical, it contains 16 key technologies that make it unique and return Russia to the top league of civil aviation.
And the next day, a new IL-114-300 passenger aircraft took off for the first time. And also with new domestic engines. This aircraft will replace the aging An-24.
We also have sea news. The Admiralty Shipyards launched the North Pole ice-resistant self-propelled platform that has no analogues in the world. In fact, this is a polar station with the functionality of a research center, which will drift in the water area of the Arctic Ocean for 2 years without entering the port. She will resume operation of drifting stations in the Arctic.
On the same days, a new nuclear-powered icebreaker Chukotka was laid down at the Baltic Shipyard. This is the fifth icebreaker of the project. The first one – “Arctic” – has already been put into operation.
All these events demonstrate: a new engineering and design school is emerging in Russia, capable of creating high-tech projects in all key areas. Our engineers and industrialists are restoring the lost ability to do what the specialists of only a few developed countries can do. And something – to nobody but us.
