“We have no right today to move in the same way. In a country where there is a need to invest in education, science, children, the disabled and so on, take the money for the development of space can only clearly imagining the task, why we do it,” – said Rogozin in the air Youtube channel “Soloviev LIVE”.
While Rogozin admitted that during every manned launch at Baikonur, is still associated with danger, think about “what we do”.
