General Designer Sergey Kuznetsov said that the resource of the multi-purpose laboratory module can be extended until 2030

KOROLEV /Moscow Region/, July 29. /TASS/. The resource of the multi-purpose laboratory module (MLM) "Science" is set until 2027 with the possibility of extension until 2030. This was stated to journalists by the general designer of the Salyut Design Bureau Sergey Kuznetsov after the docking of the Nauka with the ISS.

"Before the launch, a comprehensive survey was conducted on the module, now its resource is set until the end of 2027. We can already work until at least 2027, and in principle we can look into a more distant future: there is a chance to extend it until 2030, if necessary," he said.

Earlier it was reported that the "Science" successfully docked to the ISS.

The module "Science" is intended for the implementation of the Russian program of scientific and applied research and experiments. After the MLM is put into operation, the Russian segment will receive additional volumes for the arrangement of workplaces and cargo storage, the placement of equipment for the regeneration of water and oxygen.

With Nauka, Russian cosmonauts should get a second toilet, a cabin for a third crew member, as well as a European ERA manipulator, which will allow them to perform some work without going into outer space.
