Russia will Pass SpaceX
Russian scientists have promised to overtake Ilona Mask and SpaceX “obsolete technologies” with a nuclear missile.
Ilon Musk and SpaceX will not be able to lead the market for reusable space rockets for a long time, at least, such an opinion was expressed in Russia Research Center. Keldysh worked on the solution of a reusable rocket for ten years and is now going to make some noise by presenting a new conceptual video demonstrating the operation of the spacecraft. In a conversation with journalists, Vladimir Koshlakov explained that Ilon Musk and SpaceX do not pose a real threat. Mask, according to Koshlakov, relies on technologies that will soon become obsolete, and Russia is moving in the direction of the future of space flights.
Russian scientists claim that their nuclear rocket will be able to reach Mars seven months after launch, and the stage of reusable rockets can be reused after only 48 hours.

“Reuse in priority,” says Koshlakov. “We must develop engines that do not need to be set up or repaired more than once for ten flights. In addition, 48 hours after the rocket returns from space, it should be ready to fly again. This is what the market requires. ”
As for SpaceX, according to Koshlakov:
“Ilon Musk has been using existing technologies developed over a very long time. He is an entrepreneur: he takes an existing solution and successfully applies it. It is worth noting that the government provides assistance in its work. ”
On November 7, a video with a new spacecraft on a nuclear engine appeared on the Roscosmos YouTube channel. Some have compared it with the ship from the science fiction film Avatar, filmed by James Cameron in 2
