The formation of the Russian segment of the ISS is delayed again

Information published on the website of the Rocket and Space Corporation Energia suggests that the creation of the Russian segment of the International Space Station (ISS) is delayed for at least a year.

It is about putting three blocks into orbit. This is the multi-purpose laboratory module (MLM) “Science”, the nodal module “Berth” and the scientific and energy module (NEM).

MLM will leave for Baikonur in preparation for launch next January. The launch into space of the “Berth” block was planned to be carried out in 2021, the NEM block – in 2022.

However, the presentation slides published as part of the XIII International Scientific and Practical Conference “Manned Space Flights” suggest that the scientific and energy module will go into orbit in 2023. Thus, the completion of the creation of the ISS Russian segment is delayed again.

At the same time, during a speech at the conference, Mikhail Khaylov, Deputy Director General of Roscosmos State Corporation, noted that Russia is actively continuing activities on manned space exploration.

“We are preparing modern space vehicles (modules for the ISS), active work is underway on a new manned spacecraft, which should be put into orbit in the coming years. We have begun to formulate a comprehensive program for the exploration of the Moon, which will be the development and communication of automatic space vehicles, robotic systems and manned space flights, ”said Mr. Khaylov.
