Russia releases model of its space station that will have 6 modules


Roscosmos showed off a model of the planned space station – above – which will have four modules in its first phase

The Russian space agency unveiled a physical model of what its planned space station will look like once the country abandons the International Space Station (ISS) and goes its own way.
Roscosmos showed off a model of the planned space station – which will have four modules during its first phase and eventually expand to six with a service platform – at a military-industrial exhibition outside Moscow.
When completed, the station will be able to accommodate up to four cosmonauts and scientific equipment.
Roscosmos head Yuris Borisov, who was appointed last month to replace Dmitry Rogozov, reportedly reiterated at the event that Russia will quit the ISS after 2024 and that it is working on its own space station.
The Russian space agency has not provided any further details on its new station, nicknamed ROSS – Russian Orbital Service Station – including exactly when it will launch.
Russian state media have suggested the first stage could be launched in 2025-25 and no later than 2030, with the final stage planned for 2030-35.
The Russian station will be run differently from the ISS. It is not designed to be constantly staffed. Instead, cosmonauts will stay for two extended periods throughout the year.
