Russia’s State Space Corporation Roscosmos has launched a federal program for creating a super-heavy carrier rocket, Dmitry Rogozin, Roscosmos Chief said on Monday.

The creation of the super-heavy carrier rocket and the construction of the corresponding infrastructure will cost $24 billion, TASS reported.

The conceptual design of the super-heavy space rocket complex is planned to be completed by October 31, 2019.

The construction of infrastructure for the new carrier is expected to begin at the Vostochny spaceport in the Russian Far East in 2026.

The Russian super-heavy carrier rocket is intended to deliver over 70 tonnes of cargo into low near Earth orbit.

According to Roscosmos’s estimates, the creation of the super-heavy carrier rocket and the construction of the corresponding infrastructure are likely to cost 1.5 trillion rubles ($24 billion).

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the decree on creating the space rocket compound at the Vostochny cosmodrome.

Its creation envisages utilizing the accumulated potential using the elements and technologies of the Soyuz-5 medium-class rocket, currently under development, to create the super heavy launch vehicle.
