Roscosmos announced the launch of modules of the Russian orbital station in 2027-2030MOSCOW, 13 February. /TASS/. The Science and Energy Module (NEM) of the Russian Orbital Station (ROS) will be launched in 2027, and four more modules will go into orbit in 2028-2030. This was announced in an interview with TASS by Deputy General Designer of the Energia Rocket and Space Corporation (part of Roskosmos), Chief Designer of ROS Vladimir Kozhevnikov."At the moment, we plan to launch the first, scientific and energy, module at the end of 2027, the nodal, gateway, basic and target modules - for the period 2028-2030," Kozhevnikov said.According to the chief designer, the timing of the plant's deployment will be determined based on the results of the preliminary design, which will be completed this year. "The work on the NEM, after a pause, has been deployed in full. The draft design of the ROS defines the requirements for its completion, which will be implemented starting from 2024. The launch of the NEM into the orbit of the ROS is planned using the Angara-5M rocket," he explained.At the same time, the station, Kozhevnikov stressed, will be practically "eternal". "The proposed project provides for the possibility of replacing worn-out modules. This will not only keep it operational, but also ensure that the technical and technological equipment of the station is up to date," the chief designer added.Kozhevnikov also recalled that the launch of crews to the new orbital station is planned with the help of a promising transport ship from the Vostochny cosmodrome. This will make it possible to implement the "new station - new ship - new spaceport" strategy.In April 2021, Yuri Borisov, who at that time was Deputy Prime Minister, stated that the state of the ISS leaves much to be desired, so Russia can focus on creating its own orbital station. At the moment, its preliminary design is underway. In October, Deputy Prime Minister - Head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov told reporters that the preliminary cost of creating a promising Russian orbital station is already known.
