Founder of SpaceX, Elon Musk on Tuesday made a statement. He says, Space Agency of the state of Russia, Roscomos has made the very right decision to develop a reusable rocket. NASA recently relied upon Elon’s “Falcon 9” reusable rocket to send two U.S. astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS). He gave his Russian space-faring counterparts, a piece of free advice through his twitter account this week. Elon tweeted that “It’s a step in the right direction.” He commented about the event where TASS released material on Monday on plans of Russia related to work which is at its first stage to develop the Amur methane-fueled reusable rocket.

What Has Elon Musk got To Say About This?

Elon Musk further added that when the Amur’s first launch is scheduled, Russia should really focus on a fully reusable rocket by 2026. When Musk was responding to a report with a reference to the material of TASS where the Amur reusable rocket’s configuration design was unveiled, he said,” Goal should be to make the cost per useful ton to be minimum or it will at best serve a niche market”.

Elon Musk further added that a larger rocket would also be fine for literal economies of scale. On Monday, the Progress Rocket and Space Center and Roscosmos signed a deal or one can say a contract on the development of the conceptual design of the Amur-SPG space rocket center. It is for Russia’s first reusable methane-fueled rocket. The rocket is going to get a reusable first stage. They also decided that its launch is going to be carried out from the Vostochny spaceport which located in the Russian Far East.

Roscosmos told TASS, we directed that the overall cost of the work on creating this amazing reusable rocket should not exceed the budget which is 70 billion rubles (around $880 million). Whereas we also calculated and fixed the price of service for launching at the level of $22 million. They also told us that if everything goes according to plan, we can expect that the reusable rocket can set to blast off soon. This is going to be for the first time together with a payload. The expected time of launch is in 2026. The launch vehicle is going to be able to orbit up to 12.5 tonnes of payload.

Roscosmos further says that they are also planning to develop a larger reusable rocket with increased lifting capacity for more usability, in near future. This is a great task they seek to accomplish.
