The new one we bring now also focuses on the Soviet space sphere. At the end of last February it has been pointed out that the Soviets have offered satellite placement service in space at a very tight price.

Alexander Dounaiev, president of Glavkosmos, a selling company of Soviet space technology, has stated in Switzerland that the price of putting a satellite in space through the launcher Proton will be 30 million dollars.

This price is very good compared to what Europeans and Americans offer. The European launch Ariane costs between 40 and 60 million. The American is even more expensive. Martin Marietta offers the launch of Titan in 100 million.

The Soviets also rent out the use of the Mir space station. Its cost will be between 20,000 and 30,000 dollars/kg. The sessions would be held by the Soviet cosmonauts, but if desired, the cosmonauts sent by the landlords. In the latter case, the cost of the astronaut would be between 8 and 10 million dollars per week in the Soviet station.
