MOSCOW, September 2. /TASS/. The federal space agency Roscosmos plans to start deploying the new Russian Orbital Service Station (ROSS) in five-six years, Roscosmos Chief Dmitry Rogozin said at the New Knowledge online educational marathon on Thursday.
"We are planning to start deploying this station somewhere in five-six years," Rogozin said.
Russia's new research and power module will serve as the basic module of the future orbital station, the Roscosmos chief said.
"This will be already a completely new generation of orbital modules. The new station will feature open architecture and similar modules will replace each other when they use up their service life," Rogozin said.
