Launch vehicle Energia
Launch vehicle Energia being developed as a part of the
Energia-Buran Reusable Space System is a versatile, heavy-lift
launch vehicle capable to deliver large payloads up to 100
t attached to the exterior to orbits and near-Earth space.
Mass of payloads delivered to:
- low orbits of artificial Earth satellite - up to 100
- the geostationary orbit - up to 20 t
- the lunar mission trajectory - up to 32 t.
LV Energia ensures all-azimuth launches, however, orbits
of 51°, 65° and 97° inclinations are taken as reference
orbits defined by areas in which stage I depleted boosters
1206 organizations and 100 ministries and agencies participated
in the Energia-Buran Space System development. Famous scientific
and production centers of Russia, Ukraine, Belorussia, and
other republics of the USSR were involved in this developmental
