Despite frequent trips into space, Russia’s space program does not currently have a reusable cargo spacecraft. As things stand, SpaceX is the only company in the world offering this service, and, according to RTSS chairman Sergey Sopov, demand is rising due to a growing “interest in conducting experiments” in space.

Once completed, Argo will be capable of delivering 2000kg of cargo into space and bringing 1000kg back to earth.

In May, SpaceX became the first private company to launch NASA astronauts into space. Following the American success, Roscosmos chief Dmitry Rogozin ramped up Russian plans for space exploration. In August, Roscosmos announced it wanted to replace the current Soyuz MS with a winged space shuttle, similar to the 1980s Buran spacecraft.
