Russia denies `systemic crisis` in space industry
Moscow: The Russian space industry is not in a crisis despite some local problems, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said Friday.
"There is no systemic crisis in the Russian space industry; we have problems with some firms, in some sectors," said Rogozin, who oversees the military-industrial complex in the Russian government.
The government`s military-industrial commission and the Federal Space Agency Roscosmos are working hard to eliminate those problems, he said, adding that they include technology, personnel and discipline.
Russia has recently experienced a number of unsuccessful space launches, losing several commercial satellites and the Phobos-Grunt Mars mission.
According to NASA, Russia has failed in all 17 of its attempts to study the Red Planet close-up since 1960. The most recent failure before November 2011 occurred in 1996, when Russia lost its Mars-96 orbiter during launch.
