MOSCOW, April 23. /TASS/. Removing the International Space Station from orbit after its life cycle is over and dumping it in the Pacific Ocean will take about twelve months, the president of the space rocket corporation Energia Vladimir Solntsev has told TASS in an interview.
"Technically Russia will be able to perform this procedure. If it is approved, the standard descent of the ISS will take about one year. This stems from the capability of Russian cargo spacecraft to deliver fuel to the ISS and the need for the station’s deceleration in the Earth’s atmosphere. Russia has experience of deorbiting the MIR space station. It can be used in this particular case," Solntsev said.
