The Roscosmos State Corporation showed for the first time a model of the new Russian orbital station. The sketch is being developed by RSC Energia (part of Roscosmos).
The deployment of the station will be carried out in two stages. In the first stage, the station will be equipped with four modules: scientific and energy, hub, base and gateway.
In the second stage, it is planned to supplement the station with destination and production modules, as well as a service platform.
At the end of July, the new head of Roskosmos, Yuri Borisov, announced that Russia would withdraw from the ISS project by 2024 – the operating agreements are in force until then – and then begin to develop its own station.
On August 4, Roscosmos Executive Director for Manned Programs Sergei Krikalev announced that the date of departure from the ISS would depend on the “technical state of the station”. Thus, it can take place both in 2025 and 2030. This information was confirmed by other countries participating in the project.
