Angara carrier rocket in Sea Launch project


Russia’s promising Angara-A3 medium-class carrier rocket may be used in the Sea Launch project instead of the Russian-Ukrainian Zenit rocket, the chief designer of the Khrunichev Space Center, which is the Angara developer, told TASS on Tuesday.

“So far, this idea remains. We should wait for some decisions, after which it will be possible to have a serious talk about something,” Alexander Medvedev said.

At least two options are being discussed to adapt the floating Sea Launch platform and the Angara carrier rocket, the chief designer said.
