NASA allowed the ISS to operate after 2028
The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) expects to operate the International Space Station (ISS) until at least 2028. This is reported by TASS with reference to the representative of the American department Stephanie Schirholz.
According to her, the agency allows the maintenance of the station after this period. Schirholz noted that NASA's goal is a continuous presence in low-Earth orbit, which will allow the transfer from the ISS to another platform. She also added that the agency continues to update the technical analysis of the ISS's lifespan.
Earlier, Roskosmos said that the operation of the Russian segment (RS) of the ISS is planned to be completed by 2028. It was also explained that “due to the aging of a significant part of the station equipment, further operation of the ISS RS after 2024 creates additional risks.”
