  • ANALYSIS: Ukraine's and Russia's aerospace industries will be hit hard by deteriorating relations

    News | 23 Sep 2014 10:16

    Ever since Russia-backed forces began to take control of the Crimean peninsula at the end of February, a steady of escalation of sanctions by Ukraine against Russia has had increasingly negative effects on the aerospace sectors of both countries. Since the collapse of the former Soviet Union in 1991, the two countries' industries had enjoyed an at-times contentious but largely productive collaborative relationship. The most recent round of embargoes placed on Russia by Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko, however, will cut the links and cause collateral damage on both sides.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Ukraines-and-Russias-aerospace-industries-will-be-hit-hard-by-deteriorating-relations-403480/

    ​Attempts to reach Mars date to the 1960s, but the red planet is a notoriously hazardous destination for spacecraft. Several early US and Soviet attempts failed beforeNASA’sMariner 4achieved a fly-by in 1965. The first orbits followed in the early 1970s (Mariner 9, USA, and Mars 2 and 3, USSR). NASA’s 1975 Viking landers were the first truly successful spacecraft to reach the surface. After a hiatus during the 1980s and early 1990s, Mars is today a very busy place.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/IN-FOCUS-Mars-missions-active-and-planned-399863/
