Rogozin said that Samara is ready to challenge Elon Musk

The head of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin said that Samara specialists are capable of challenging the SpaceX company of the American billionaire Elon Musk. He made such a statement at a meeting with the Governor of the Samara Region Dmitry Azarov at the Progress Rocket and Space Center. Rogozin noted the excellent training of Russian young scientists and said that they never stop there. The event also discussed the prospects for the development of the enterprise and the training of personnel for the space industry.

Dmitry Rogozin emphasized that a design bureau is working on the basis of Samara University, preparing new generations of young scientists, designers, engineers who are able to solve new problems.

“And if we talk about which of the Russian space firms is most ready to challenge the SpaceX team, I think this is Samara,” the press service of the Samara region government quoted Rogozin as saying.

Earlier, “Secret” said that Rogozin urged billionaires not to make astronautics a way of escape from the planet. In his opinion, astronautics should be aimed at recreating the conditions for the survival of people on Earth.

The head of Roscosmos periodically reacts to Musk's statements. So, Rogozin called the plans to land Starship ships on Mars until 2030 as an absolute absurdity.

Then Rogozin was not impressed by Elon Musk's speech at the Russian forum. According to the head of the state corporation, the American billionaire said nothing new. He urged to invite Russian representatives to such events so that the country would know about them.
