A Russian research center has wrapped a powerful, reusable nuclear engine that has been designed for Mars's efforts.

Obviously, the center scientists are working on this new propulsion system since 2009.

It uses a gas-cooled disintegration reactor which gives power to the generator.



In a video posted on social media, it has been claimed that the rocket can reach Mars after seven months and it can be re-launched in space after 48 hours of landing.

Currently, the most famous reusable Rocket Elon Musk's private space company is the Falcon series developed by SpaceX. plasma thruster to inspire the rocket.

Elon Musk and SpaceX will not lead long reusable rocket space race, at least if there is nothing to say about Russia. Russia's Kildeish Research Center has been working on a reusable rocket solution for nearly a decade, and now it is promoting a new concept video with the demonstrations in which it shows how its spacecraft works.

Talking to reporters, Vladimir Koshkov explained that there is no real threat to the plans of Elon Musk and SpaceX Group. Koshakova says, is dependent on technology which will soon be antiquated, while Russia is looking towards shaping the future of Spacefight.

Russian researchers say that their nuclear powered rocket platform will be able to make it in Mars after seven months of launch, and its reusable rocket stages can be retained in service only after 48 hours.

Koshlakov reportedly said, "Reusability is priority." "We have to develop engines that do not need to repair or repair more than once in every ten flights, and 48 hours after rocket return from space, it should be ready to go again. This is the demand. "

Obviously, since SpaceX is currently the biggest name of reusable rocket technology, the subject of competition was brought by journalists. Koshkov's answer is somewhat anticipated but still interesting.

"Elon Musk is using the existing technology, which was developed a long time ago," he said. "He is a businessman: he took a solution that was already, and successfully implemented it, in particular, he is doing his job with the help from the government."

This is the latest shadow thrown by scientists in Moscow on Musk. Last year, the director of Russia's top spacefight contractor had made some stern statements that the SpaceX boss was crazy if he thought that SpaceX would be able to pay passengers traveling in space.
