Russia is prepared to begin constructing its own space station to dispatch it into space by 2030 if President Vladimir Putin gives the approval, the top of its Roscosmos space organization has said.
The task would end over twenty years of close participation with the United States on board the maturing International Space Station (ISS).
“If in 2030, in accordance with our plans, we can put it into orbit, it will be a colossal breakthrough,” Interfax news agency quoted Roscosmos chief Dmitry Rogozin as saying. “The will is there to take a new step in world manned space exploration.”
Russian cosmonauts have worked with partners from the United States and 16 different nations about the ISS since 1998. It is probably the nearest field of collaboration among Moscow and Washington, whose relations are generally in emergency regarding basic freedoms, cyberattacks and different issues.
The Russian delegate PM, Yuri Borisov, revealed to Russian TV at the end of the week that Moscow would pull out to its accomplices that it would leave the ISS project from 2025.
Rogozin said the Russian station, in contrast to the ISS, would no doubt not be for all time manned in light of the fact that its circle way would open it to higher radiation. In any case, cosmonauts would visit, and it would likewise utilize man-made brainpower and robots.
He said Russia was prepared to consider permitting unfamiliar groups to visit,“but the station must be national … If you want to do well, do it yourself”.
Interfax cited an anonymous source as saying that Russia wanted to spend up to $6bn to get the venture dispatched.
