Today, January 24, within the framework of the 47th academic readings on astronautics dedicated to the memory of Sergei Korolev, Yuri Borisov, the head of Roscosmos, officially announced the need to increase the Russian constellation of space satellites in Earth orbit in the near future – about this with reference to his sources reported the information publication Izvestia. Borisov also said that in the future the Russian constellation of satellites should be one thousand units – for this it is necessary to launch 200-250 spacecraft per year, which is probably quite realistic, given that earlier the head of Roscosmos announced the need to release satellites daily .

At the moment, unfortunately, Russia produces noticeably fewer spacecraft, so increasing the production scale to 250 units per year is a very ambitious challenge for the domestic space industry. However, the head of Roskosmos believes that the plans should be implemented by 2030, so if you increase production capacity gradually, this task is quite feasible. In addition, Borisov, as part of the event, said that the project of the “eternal” space station is planned to be implemented as early as 2027 – it will be completely modular, so that obsolete components can be changed over time.
