ISS: Life after 2020

Neither Russian Federal Space Agency, nor other participants of the International space station programme plan to submerge the station in 2020, Russian authorities recently told mass-media.

      Rumors about International space station having the same fate as “Mir” orbital station after 2020 started spreading around. Russian space authorities deny this plan and say that various possible scenarios exist for the station after 2020. One of them is operation of the whole station on the orbit till 2028, which has no technical contraindications. Another possible scenario is leaving Russian segment of the station on the orbit for separate operation.

      No final decision on the station yet exists; however, it should be made within next 2-3 years.
