Reading Time: < 1 minute

Russia’s CosmoCourse CEO Pavel Pushkin told Russian news agency TASS that the CosmoCourse private space tourism company will send from one to six dummies for the first autonomous flight of a returnable capsule and equip it with sensors.

During the tests of the returnable capsule, the company is also ready to launch a robot or animals into outer space, the chief executive said.

The returnable capsule and a carrier rocket are planned to be manufactured at an enterprise in the Moscow Region. The capsule’s first autonomous flight is scheduled for 2023, Pushkin said.

CosmoCourse is developing a reusable spacecraft for sub-orbital tourist flights. A crew of six persons and an instructor is expected to make a 15-minute flight to an altitude of about 200 km. The preparations for the flight will take one day. The first manned flight is planned for 2025.
