DOT Desk: President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday the first segment of Russia’s new orbital station, which Moscow sees as the next logical development in space exploration after the International Space Station (ISS), should be put into operation by 2027,reports TBS.
In a meeting with space industry officials, Putin also vowed to proceed with Russia’s lunar programme despite the failure in August of its first moonshot in 47 years, Russian news agencies reported. Putin said Moscow’s decision to extend to 2028 its participation in the ISS, now 25 years old, was a temporary measure.
“As the resources of the International Space Station run out, we need not just one segment, but the entire station to be brought into service,” Putin was quoted as saying of the new Russian orbital station.
“And in 2027, The first segment should be place in orbit.”
