The launch of the “Science” module was postponed to the summer
The International Space Station Unit (ISS) will be launched in the summer of 2021. Before, Roskosmos said Noka will go to the International Space Station in April and May 2021.
The head of the Russian section of the International Space Station, Vladimir Solovioff, said in the air of Russia 24 TV channel, a lot of work is scheduled to do in 2021.
“The unit was sent to the Baconor cosmodromic base at the end of last year. There is a certain set of tests. Soloviioff said the release of this unit was planned in summer.
He also emphasized that the unit is being tested and currently and that there is comments on it, for example, about electricity and design, but all are critical and removable. The release is not expected to be transferred to a later date.
The unit trip to the station will take about 10 days. It will be released using the Proton-M launch vehicle. Soloviioff said the integration with the International Space Station will require 7-8 space operations and will be done in a pre-prepared location.
“After the doctrine, very serious measures were planned, in my opinion, seven or eight traffic operations in order to integrate this unit and enter the international space station.”
Earlier, Roskosmos reported that Noka would go to the international space station in spring. In December, Roscosmos President Dmitry Rogozin said that if the unit caused the lowest complaint, the launch will be postponed in July.
The Nauka unit should go to the International Space Station in 2007, but due to defects in the fuel system, the launch had to be postponed. After that, the unit shipping date to the space was set in 2014 and 2017.
Now factory control tests for the unit continue in Baqonor Cosmodrome. To date, thread experts have completed 80 % of the planned tests. The television communication system and the aerobic food system for the TV system, including television circuits, coding and television communications through global crew stations, were tested.
The main and reserve groups of the system were examined to ensure the stereotype temperature system, Nauki payment components, motion control and navigation system.
The pressure system and fuel supply for high pressure and high pressure pressure and pressure sensors for pressure and fuel supply systems have also been successfully tested.
The Nauka unit was developed based on Zari’s functional loading block. It will be placed on the door of the Zvezda Service Unit.
After running the new unit, the Russian section will receive additional sizes to organize jobs and store products and place the equipment to renew water and oxygen and improve astronaut conditions and become more comfortable, and the safety of roskosmos notes that all over International space team will increase.
Nauka has a 10 -year -old supplier who will guarantee the operation of the Russian part of the International Space Station by 2030.
