    Must be. No other differences with Soyuz-FG on the third stage, right?

    Fregat engineers must be opening champagne right now. Unlike Soyuz-2 engineers. In their case it’s probably vodka.

    Theoretically. But you have to be fantastically stupid to shoot a gun in a pressurized compartment in space.

    Cold, Laser-Coupled Particle Beams

    Holy hell. For real? Can’t even imagine how it looks like, burning away this much material this fast. Probably like a big, continuous explosion. Will the target ship be disintegrated into dust by the shockwaves from tons of material instantly evaporating every second? Man, I wouldn’t want to be in that ship. If these LCPBs are indeed weapons of choice for future space combat, I hope we come up with some kind of sci-fi energy shields, because this “plasma-magnet-drone” defence doesn’t look very effective.

    Since 2007 they get a semi-automatic Makarov pistol.

    In the first sentence they say "flights of tourists to near-earth orbit", but the rest of the text describes it as suborbital. Which one is it?

    No need to throw it away, let’s say that all 3 boosters are landed back at the launch site.

    Found this render. Does this configuration make any sense? Is there a mission that would benefit from this? I doubt that droneship landing for Super Heavy will be a thing, so let’s assume that all 3 boosters RTLS.
