According to today’s Russian News Agency, Manturov said that the Russian “Energy” Rocket and Space Corporation has confirmed the possibility of delaying the use of the equipment and modules of the Russian part of the International Space Station at the technical level, and has also formulated an extension plan, “International Space Station Russia There is no technical problem with the partial deferred service.”
Manturov said that Russia’s decision to extend the ISS program is to ensure the continuity of the country’s human spaceflight program, maintain indigenous design and production capabilities, and maintain principles such as national reputation and technological sovereignty.
The International Space Station was built in 1998. It is an international cooperation project mainly involving the United States and Russia, and 16 countries including Japan, Canada, European Space Agency member states and Brazil. The International Space Station is designed to serve until 2015, but it has been extended twice to 2020 and 2024 respectively. The current equipment is seriously aging. Borisov, President of Roscosmos, said on July 26 that Russia will withdraw from the International Space Station project after 2024, and will begin the establishment of a Russian orbital service station.
Solovyov, chief designer of Russia’s “Energy” rocket and space group, said in an interview with the media that the construction of the Russian orbital service station will not be earlier than 2028, and the International Space Station will continue to be used before the construction of the Russian orbital service station achieves a major breakthrough. .
