the Head of the Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, announced that Russia had to respond to the dumping of SpaceX Elon musk on the launch services market.
According to him, the price of launches will be reduced by 30 percent. Rogozin added that the Russian side proposed order pricing – in fact, the answer is “Roscosmos” to dumping by American companies funded by the budget of the United States. Now “Roscosmos” reduces non-productive costs and improves the operating efficiency of the company.
Rogozin added that the market price of the rocket launch SpaceX is now approximately $ 60 million. However, for NASA, they cost 1.5 to 4 times more expensive.
