International Space Station (ISS), which has hosted numerous missions for 23 years since the launch of its first module in 1998 will expire soon. Various studies have been carried out on how to destroy the ISS for a few years, which was initially estimated to have an average life of 30 years.
One of the first options discussed for this plan is Russia’s station with at least two Progress spacecraft. real thrust from orbit to atmosphere was the option. The ISS, which would melt some of it while entering the atmosphere with the propulsion process, would then fall into a certain region in the Pacific Ocean. With this plan, NASA different procedures priced also stated that.
Russia’s purpose is clear, NASA is undecided:
While both NASA, Russia and other international partners are discussing how to destroy the ISS, it is necessary to determine when it will happen. The only ISS partner with a clear purpose in this regard is Russia. Russia’s purpose To leave the station altogether in 2025.
However, NASA and its partners do not have a clear plan in this regard now. One of the clearest statements made by NASA on this matter dates back to last November. Officials said in the statement that the use of the ISS was officially allowed until 2024, but Until 2028 stated that there is no harm in using it technically.
What both Russia and NASA should take jointly and cost a lot It is thought that the process will not take very short, as there are decisions with possibility. However, the lack of a disposal plan for this giant station, which should be destroyed only after a few years, and the ongoing indecisions. insecurity gives birth.
