Russia’s planned go-it-alone orbital space station could replace aging & deteriorating international ISS, suggests Roscomos head

The planned Russian Orbital Service Station (ROSS), an inhabited satellite scheduled to be fired into the cosmos in 2025, may be used as a prototype to replace the aging International Space Station (ISS) once it is decommissioned.

That’s according to the head of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin. Roscosmos is Russia’s state-run space agency and is responsible for the country’s cosmonautics programs and research.

With Russia’s obligations to participate in the ISS program coming to an end in 2025, there has long been speculation about the future of the inhabited satellite. Earlier this year, President Vladimir Putin approved the construction of ROSS, a Moscow-funded replacement.
