Cosmonaut Padalka explained the stagnation of Russia in space

Hero of the Russian Federation cosmonaut Gennady Padalka listed the causes of stagnation in the domestic space industry, writes RIA Novosti.

From the point of view of Padalka, who spent a total of 878 days in space in space for five flights in space in total, the industry has surrendered over the past twenty years. He called technological lag the first reason for this process, since the Russian segment of the International Space Station (ISS) was built using the technology of the 1980s. In addition, the astronaut said that the reliable Soyuz spacecraft, although well made, was long outdated and constantly undergoing modernization.

The astronaut called the second factor the inefficient use of allocated budget and commercial funds in the industry. Padalka also pointed out that Russia is experiencing a shortage of qualified personnel due to a serious bias towards managers, lawyers and financiers. “We are still flying on what we inherited from the Soviet Union,” the astronaut concluded, adding that from the manned space program, in his opinion, nothing new was created in the Russian Federation.

Earlier in December, the head of Roskosmos Dmitry Rogozin announced his intention to create an elevator that will deliver cargo to the moon. According to him, it will be possible to recoup the project with the implementation of private foreign orders, since many states are "torn into space."
