Spacecraft History and Specification

In 1983, U.S. President Reagan launched a "Star Wars" program, a shield intended to defend the U.S. against nuclear attack from any place on earth. The Soviet Union immediately accused the United States of seeking to militarily dominate over the others. The U.S.S.R. chairman Andropov sought to bring about a treaty banning military weapons from space, and authorized the design of counter-measures, including Polyus from design bureau Salyut. In 1984, design and construction of the Polyus platform began and was given highest priority. The Polyus mounted cannon to defence against ASAT weapons, and would have been capable of delivering nuclear warheads from orbit to any point in the US in six minutes. In 1986, with the first Energia rocket launch schedule was confirmed by the Minister of Industry, the Polyus was selected to be the first payload for the Energia. The Polyus-Energia was finally launched in 1987, but was failure to achieve working orbit because only one of the 16 positioning engines work. it continuous according to the ballistic trajectory and goes crashing in the Pacific Ocean.
