Russia says to launch own space station in 2025


Russia's space agency said on ทดลองเล่นสล็อต xo it hoped to launch its own orbital station in 2025 as Moscow
considers withdrawing from the International Space Station programme to go it alone.

Roscosmos chief Dmitry Rogozin said work had begun on the fist module of a new station, after officials warned
that Russia was considering pulling out of the ISS, one of the few successful examples of cooperation with
the West.

The announcement came with tensions soaring over espionage claims, a Russian troop build-up along Ukraine's
borders and the deteriorating health of President Vladimir Putin's imprisoned critic Alexei Navalny.

"The first core module of the new Russian orbital station is in the works," Rogozin said in a statement
on messaging app Telegram.

He said Russia's Energia space corporation was aiming to have the module "ready for launch" in 2025 and
released a video of Energia staff at work.

Launched in 1998 and involving Russia, the United States, Canada, Japan, and the European Space Agency,
the ISS is one of the most ambitious international collaborations in human history.

Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov said in recent days that Moscow was considering whether to leave
the ISS programme from 2025 because of the station's age.
