Russia will build a national orbital station to replace the ISS


Russia will create its own orbital station, which will be used by cosmonauts after the mothballing of the domestic segment of the ISS. The project for the construction of a space object has already been approved by President Vladimir Putin during a closed meeting on the development of the space industry, according to the publication. "Moscow Komsomol".


The start of work on the creation of a national orbital station is scheduled for the near future. The Russian specialists are faced with the task of building the facility as soon as possible in order to prevent a long absence of our cosmonauts in orbit. The publication reminds that the estimated service life of the Russian segment on the ISS will end in 2025. After which the latter will be mothballed.

The proposal to abandon the ISS was previously announced by Roscosmos. Specialists from the state corporation argue that a massive failure of the systems of the operating orbital station may soon begin due to the approach of the deadline for operation. According to preliminary estimates, the maintenance of our segment in the coming years may cost 10-15 billion rubles, which is very expensive.

Recall that the International Space Station has been in use since 1998. Roughly, its service life should come to an end in 2024. At the same time, the countries participating in the project are considering the option of extending the existence of the multipurpose space research complex until 2030.

    Cosmolift needs to be done by Russia. First, based on Buran. Slow down its speed upon landing so that the hull does not get so hot.

      Dear, how do you imagine this is "to slow down, so as not to get warm"?
      At one time there was such a "great scientist" by the name of Michurin, and so he proposed to breed a chicken with eight legs - everyone loves the legs and is useful for the national economy ...

    Interestingly, V.V. Do you know that in our hospitals, when you go to bed, you need to have a mug, a spoon (fork, knife) and a towel with you?

      The towel is a personal hygiene item.

      Interestingly, V.V. I know that in our hospitals, when you go to bed, .......

      Where is it?
      And in any case, I took all of the above with me, more slippers, a bathrobe and bed linen. It was all in the hospital and even clean, but I can't bring myself to use it.
      And yes - the feeding is excellent, but some kind of official.

    And what is the knife for? Mugs and plates were always strongly recommended to have their own (in the hospitals of the USSR, in surgery and orthopedics, spent 4 years).

    Interestingly, and who cares for plates from the catering, knows what a hospital infection is? Even E. coli in the 1200500 generation, most likely, will not be washed off a hospital dish. Better to have your own.

      Dear colleagues, proletarian HI!
      Article, or as the site owner calls it, "news", so without a signature and a link to the source, what about?
      About the national orbital station.
      By the way, the day before yesterday was Cosmonautics Day.
      Korolev, Gagarin and their colleagues, real heroes. Low bow. They brought the USSR to the fore.
      And now to today's capitalist land.
      Satellites of all types and purposes, this is necessary and understandable. A large number of our carriers are withdrawing, both to the country of profits and to the workers of Roscosmos and its TsENKI into the house.
      But why the station? And most importantly, how much does this program cost?
      Revived the twig? Opponents, welcome !!! drinks
