  1. Congratulations to Russia on their new space launch port. The flame trench is beautiful,I wonder how many Russians that see this will know of how important that trench is? We found how important it is to get rid of the vibration when the Russian moon rocket was damaged at launch from (not enough flame/thrust damping).

  2. Strange choice of location. There is no doubt that Amur region where the new cosmodrome located, will belong to China in near future. China doesn’t need another space launch site, so they will probably just abandon it.
    Should have spent money on another useful project, but there must be a reason they did it. They must have stolen half of the money allocated for the construction.

  3. “….will belong to China in near future….”. LOLZ. It’s the indebted Americans who should be wary of the Chinese.

    The way things are going with American debts, maybe San Franciso will be Chinese city soon.

    “Should have spent money on another useful project…”. See, “Karlo” boy, Space Launchs are a pretty nice business. Russian Soyuz is the only ticket to space these days for NASA’s astronauts (and everybody else).

    But we know that simple reality won’t change your funny fantasies, full of childish, embittered hatred.
    LOL
