The Raptor engine, developed by Musk's engineers, finally surpassed the Russian RD-180 engine, known for its exceptional technical parameters, and the personal fortune of the businessman himself increased by a fabulous $ 32.6 billion in just one day.

Vadim Lukashevich, a well-known technical expert and regular contributor to Novye Izvestia, drew attention to a new stage in the global “battle” between Elon Musk and Dmitry Rogozin.

He recalled how back in February 2019, Elon Musk said that his Raptor engine surpassed the Russian RD-180 engine known for its exceptional technical parameters (this is a line of engines coming from the Soviet RD-170/171, entirely on the Soviet basis) in terms of pressure in combustion chamber.

The Raptor engine, created at the Musk enterprises, reached a pressure of 268.9 bar on February 11, 2019, surpassing our RD-180 (the pressure in the combustion chamber of which is 261.7 kgf / sq. Cm, i.e. 256.6 bar).

Dmitry Rogozin immediately announced loudly that he did not believe that Musk would be able to create an engine better than the RD-180, because he was not an expert in this matter, and he did notunderstand at all what was being discussed, and Russia “in this parts number one in the world" and so on. etc.:

Rogozin's manic disbelief in the possibility of Ilona Mask was then explained by the chief designer of NPO Energomash, Pyotr Lyovochkin:

"Musk talks about the superiority of the American Raptor engine over the Russian RD-180, since he is not a technical specialist ..." Speaking about the pressure in the combustion chamber, Lyovochkin clarified that the RD-180 was certified with a 10% margin, so the pressure in its combustion chamber "Above 280 atmospheres."

“In general, we have all the specialists in rocket engines, our RD-180 engine, taking into account a 10% reserve, is certified for pressure in the combustion chamber up to 282.3 bar, so Musk of Nibelmes does not know what he is talking about in the engines. And in general, he will not be able to do nichrome, because we have all the specialists in rocket engines, our engine, taking into account a 10% reserve, is certified for pressure up to 282.3 bar, and Musk Nibelmes at... This music will be eternal if I replace batteries", - writes Lukashevich.

And on exactly January 4, 2022, Elon Musk announced that the working pressure in the combustion chamber of his Raptor-2 had reached 300 bar.

“The country has not finished celebrating yet, but here is such a national humiliation ... Dmitry Olegovich, how can we answer the swindler-crook-swindler-almost bankrupt?”, - the expert asks.

But not only Musk's successes in engine building are remembered today by the world media, but also a phenomenal financial achievement, which Forbes reported:

“Elon Musk's fortune increased by $ 32.6 billion during the day and reached $ 304.2 billion. This was due to the fact that Tesla shares jumped in price by 13.53% to $ 1,199.78 per share. The company broke its previous record for car shipments, leading to one of its largest one-day rises in wealth”.

Rogozin will never be able to surpass this figure for sure...
