MOSCOW, October 15. /TASS/. Russia plans to launch the OKA-T free flying experiments module in 2018, the deputy head of the Russian space agency Roscosmos said on Wednesday.
“We will have a free flying experiments module, OKA-T, which is to be launched for the International Space Station (ISS) in 2018,” Denis Lyskov told the Open Innovations Forum in Moscow.
The OKA-T autonomous laboratory is designed for creating ideal conditions for experiments, which are impossible to be carried out on the ISS. The main advantage of the module is that it will not be subjected to the vibrations of the ISS.
“That’s why for the conditions linked to zero-gravity and thermal parameters, such a module is being developed that will undock from the ISS, perform its task and then dock back,” he said.
The launch of the module has been delayed for several years.
