John Batchelor and I welcomed Anatoly Zak back to Hotel Mars to update us on the Voschotny spaceport, Soyuz rocket launches, the new Angara rocket and pad development, plus Russian space station plans past 2024. We also talked about the 6,00KM distance from most Russian centers to Voschotny and the constraints and limitations on getting their with large shipments due to old infrastructure that cannot handle large loads. Anatoly was asked about the orbital inclination from launch from Voschotny. I also asked him about the personal involvement of Putin in the spaceport development project. He said Putin does not get involved directly but it is known to be his pet project.
