Roscosmos News

Roscosmos, officially known as the State Corporation for Space Activities “Roscosmos,” is the governmental body responsible for the space science program of the Russian Federation and general aerospace research. Established in its current form in 1992, Roscosmos is the successor to the former Soviet space program that achieved historic milestones such as launching the first human, Yuri Gagarin, into space in 1961. Roscosmos oversees all Russian manned and unmanned space missions, satellite launches, and planetary exploration endeavors. It also manages the development and operation of space systems, such as the launch vehicles and spacecraft, and collaborates with international partners on projects like the International Space Station (ISS). Despite facing challenges such as budget constraints and competition from other countries and private companies in the space sector, Roscosmos continues to be a significant player in global space exploration and satellite technology.
