hiphar hmm, some minor details on some programs ,
"Burya" 2-stage military interceptor-bomber shuttle (important because it is first shuttle that ever flied, and because its concept and form was
later stolen by Americans and used in NASA "Space Shuttle").
PKA manned 3-stage military shuttle.
Tu-130 manned 2-stage attack spacecraft
Plasma physics was given priority in Russia many years ago, which resulted in a number of breakthroughs in theory as well as practical applications of
plasma. Perhaps one of the most interesting and promising applications of plasma is the so-called ion thruster, used to propel spacecraft. This
technology was first developed in Russia (mainly by Keldysh Research Center) and recently successfully used on an American satellite Deep Space 1. The
system uses xenon gas as fuel and can achieve exhaust velocities of up to 30 km/sec (ten times that of an average rocket engine.) Wouldn't you like
to understand how this ion drive really works? You go back to college or follow this link to MSNBC excellent interactive "Ion Drive" guide.
Interesting to note that first such "ion thrusters" were developed in USSR and used on Soviet spacecraft almost 30 years ago.
on the burya acc. to western sources , the estimated speed was greater than mach 3.5 , acc. to krutov (you can find his articles in xakep.ru in
russian ) it had limited hypersonic capability which would sacrifice range...
and russia was the first nation to use ion thrusters successfully for propulsion in space..
but it was not capable of even keeping up with a free market economy,
in the civilian sector your statement is true , but in case of military sector no ...
on your statement on ww2 , the soviets caused 85% of axis command deaths and casulties ...if USA had not joined then europe would have been
had to steal much technology to apply to it's military
seems like a strange statement , no can't agree
NAck up what it says, if you want credibility.
rogue1 , sorry i forgot the lasers krutov is talking about is military and industrial grade lasers ... like pamir ZU,triniti,Mltk etc... mltk is a
industrial grade laser ...
and your sources are western based as for your claim small hint most research in USSr was classified and secretive and krutov is one hell of a source
i must admit .... if possible check out xakep or some military related info in the former samizdat records
tokomak reactor was created by sakharov , first ion thrusters in space were soviet, also the first military grade lasers were soviet .... and their
plasma physics was the top level...
'himoyad' red mercury existence was confirmed by mr. samuel cohen and so also by mr.krutov aka vladmir frolov
if you got further doubts ask mauros for his email address and contact mr.krutov personally, i initially was skeptical like you , but after long
conversations and discussions i am convinced that he is stating the truth ..
if you have more detailed interest in krutov go to this thread :
you could find some info related to krutov on the last pages WHILE i was argueing with stellar, on this thread...
as for krutov he even ADMITTED THAT RUSSIAN NUCLEAR FORCES ARE IN RUINS AND USA COULD DESTROY THEIR NUCLEAR FORCES IN A FIRST STRIKE .. CAN YOU
IMAGINE THAT ....
