MOSCOW, March 30. /TASS/. The International Space Station (ISS) will be replaced by another joint project, which may be joined by new participants, Head of Russia’s Space Corporation Roscosmos Igor Komarov said on Wednesday.
"The ISS will be replaced by another station. Will it differ? Of course, it will. This will be a different station with a different configuration. There is an understanding that it needn’t be done by one participant," the Roscosmos head said.
"There is an understanding that we’ll continue developing the project jointly in the future. We have agreed that a club of countries that will deal with exploration and manned programs in low near-Earth orbits will be opened. We have agreed in principle that if countries are ready to participate in this and do this, the doors will be open for them, including for the countries that are now beginning to deal with outer space exploration," Komarov said.
