"Первый запуск корабля Crew Dragon с экипажем намечается на 17 декабря", - сказал собеседник агентства.
На прошлой неделе вице-президент компании SpaceX Ханс Кенигсман на пресс-конференции на вопрос, полетит ли Crew Dragon с экипажем в конце года, ответил: "Я не думаю, что это невозможно, но это становится все труднее".
"Draft Environmental Assessment for the SpaceX Starship and Super Heavy Launch Vehicle at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) - https://t.co/V7WLi7H2Qt - heck of a long read, but as we reported (https://t.co/SEUXYQszFR), Starship Pad 'off ramp' on 39A.

August 24th, either at Cape Canaveral or Boca Chica— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 3, 2019
Very convincing! Ok, Boca it is. We should have Starship Mk1 with 3 Raptors almost ready to fly by then.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 4, 2019
SpaceX’s SmallSat Rideshare Program will provide small satellite operators with regularly scheduled, dedicated Falcon 9 rideshare missions to SSO for ESPA class payloads for as low as $2.25M per mission, which includes up to 150 kg of payload mass.
Unlike traditional rideshare opportunities, these missions will not be dependent on a primary. These missions will be pre-scheduled and will not be held up by delays with co-passengers.
For payloads who run into development or production challenges leading up to launch, SpaceX will allow them to apply 100% of monies paid towards the cost of rebooking on a subsequent mission (rebooking fees may apply).
Rideshare missions accommodate customer payloads on 15” or 24” ESPA ports. Cubesats can be aggregated and launched on a customer provided, ESPA-compatible deployer.
In addition, a single slot on top of the stack is also available for larger spacecraft interfacing with a 937mm, 1194mm clamband or a standard 1575mm bolt circle--please email salesspacex.com for pricing.
With SpaceX’s SmallSat Program, if you are ready to fly during the scheduled launch period, you will fly. Dedicated rideshare missions will not be delayed by co-passenger readiness. Passengers who run into delays that prevent them from launching can apply 100% of monies paid towards the cost of rebooking on a subsequent mission. Depending on timing of change rebooking fees may apply.
