Future of the ISS : Russia's new space station beyond 2024
Russia is considering its own space station by 2025. Dmitry Rogozin the head of the Russian space corporation(Roscosmos), has confirmed this news. However, there is no final decision made on quitting the ISS yet by Russia. They are expected to work with NASA and the rest of the space agencies through 2024 before the new contract could be renewed.There are plenty of benefits for the world if they can partner with the rest of the space agencies for the new space program rather than going solo. Some of the elements in the article include following1. International Space Station history2.Roscosmos, NASA, SpaceX, ESA, Japan, Canada space agencies3.Russia's own space station4.Rational for Russia going solo with the space stationThe current International Space Station was launched in 1998 by the Russian and US space agencies and has been hailed for its exemplary cooperation involving numerous countries including Canada, Japan, and the European Space Agency.Russia has already agreed to work with NASA on the International Space Station through 2024.Beyond that, another agreement would have to be reached in order for the cooperation to continue. NASA has long been of the opinion that it will continue to work on the ISS until it makes sense to stop. Russia appears to be arguing that the space station limit will be reached shortly, and may ultimately be too old or unsafe for it to feel comfortable sending its astronauts there.Also, space stations may fall back down to earth, sometime between 2030 and 2050.Although Russia wishes to go alone with the new space station program, other space agency collaborations in the future are not ruled out. That said, there is no final decision made on quitting the ISS yet by Russia.#Internationalspacestation#iss#russia#nasa#roscosmos----------------------All the images, footage in these videos are owned by their respective owners.
