The spacecraft will be built by 2021

The Head of RKK «Energy» Vladimir Solntsev said in an interview with journalists of RIA «news» that within four years the first space craft «Federation» will be completely ready to fly.

The sun reported that eighty percent of the ship will consist of composite materials, but what will be the lander, I haven't decided yet. According to him, the developers are not much in a hurry to create not just a spaceship, but also to make it competitive. Now the engineers are working with aluminum, but will probably try to use other materials.

Manned spacecraft «Federation» is developed in the RSC «Energy» for several years and is designed not only to deliver cargo to orbit the Earth, but also for missions to the moon. «Federation» will be able to thirty days to be in the mode of Autonomous flight or to dock with the space station and remain in its composition.

The Ship can accommodate a crew of up to four people, but the first launch vehicle will be unmanned. To test the development of the astronauts will be able only in 2023.
