Quote from: ISS Daily Status Reports
CDR Padalka had several hours set aside for installing and connecting new control and navigation hardware for the Russian MRM-2 (Mini Research Module 2), to be launched on a Proton later this year (Flight 5R).

Another reference to MRM-2 flying on Proton.

Another wrong info. MRM-2 will fly on Soyuz-U. Let's not return to this question again and again.

Yes, MRM-2 will be launch atop Soyuz-U rocket, but why NASA's consolidated launch manifest say that MRM-2 will fly on Proton in Nov. 10, 2009?

mini research module really looks "mini" when compared with other major ISS modules ;)

MRM-2 Mated Configuration for docking with ISS Zvezda zenith port, like Pirs DC-1.

Thanks for that. It seems to be a no-glove environment... the Russians seem to take "contamination" with hair etc. not so serious as others. Well, at the end, why should they - it's not like anybody is going to die from that.

It doesn't look quite finished yet. Anybody know when they will start testing the module and get it to Baikonour?

There's a Buran test model in the background in a pair of images (here and here) You can also see an avionics&propulsion module for a Progress or Soyuz... and an intriguing maze of white scaffolding in one of the pictures. Could it be the MLM stand?

It is Soyuz spacecraft completely for exhibition.

Nothing intrigue, it is simply an electrical analogue of Zvezda module.

More MIM-2 familiarization photos at Energiya (another image of the Buran test model in this photo!). (I looked on the Buran site but could not figure out what model it was?)

It is 3M (or OK-KS) full-size test model.

According to Novosti kosmonavtiki forum, Roskosmos has offered to RSC Energia the following names for new Russian modules:

MRM-2 - Поиск/Poisk/Search (or Quest ;) )
MRM-1 - Развитие/Rasvitie/Development
MLM - Перспектива/Perspektiva/Perspective

I like the idea of having the MRM-2 (Russian airlock) as the same name (in translation) as American airlock.
But I can see a potential PAO problem with MRM-1 going on an American shuttle. PAO might well have a problem pronouncing "Rasvitiye" unless he/she happens to be a Russian speaker...

Consolidated launch manifest has been corrected. Perhaps people from NASA read this forum.  ;)

Thanks Suzy
Very enlighting read.  The Russians want the ISS up there even past 2020!!
Seems they want to go from there on their Mars mission around 2030. That
would be a great staging point. As for the Service Module being so old the
Russians with ESA's help could build an Advanced Service Module  with then
updated systems and dock it to the end of the current service module. Run
all controlling cables and plumbing from the new ASM thru the current service
module and the new ASM will control the ISS.

Thanks Suzy.
I can understand following news well.

Russia could build orbital assembly complex after 2020 - Energiacorporation
http://www.interfax.com/3/511798/news.aspx
"The  complex  will  be  based  on  the  Russian modules (MLM - the
Multifunctional Laboratory Module, UM - the Node Module, NEM1 and NEM2 -
the Science-Power  Modules)  once  international partners decide to stop
operating the ISS and undock them,"

Don't bet your money on it guys.

Personally I'll be positively surprised if MLM launches in 2011
I'll be even more surprised if the nodal module and science and power modules get built and get launched. (Not even hoping they'll launch in the years mentioned above.)
And as for that 'piloted station' or something. As much as I'd like it. It's not going to happen.

These are nice powerpoint presentations, but no more than that.

I'd be happy to be proven wrong though.
I always consider space to be the FIRST frontier.
