Russia to Present New ISS Module in 2016

Russia's Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center has promised to present a new module for the International Space Station (ISS) in February 2016, the center's acting chief told the press.

"We are planning to finish constructing the module in February 2016. After that it will be send to the Russian RSC Energia space corporation for final agreements. Then we will prepare it for launching and integrating into the International Space Station", Andrey Kalinovsky said.

The launch of module "Nauka" ("Science") was originally planned on 2007, but then it has been repeatedly delayed due to some technical and financial troubles.

"Nauka" will be used by astronauts for a wide range of functions, including life-support, steering the ISS with an attached motor and docking with cargo vessels.


Like a dozen other ISS modules, "Nauka" will be constructed as a big sphere-shaped capsule where the astronauts can live and work.
