The planned Russian Orbital Service Station (ROSS), an inhabited satellite scheduled to be fired into the cosmos in 2025, may be used as a prototype to replace the aging International Space Station (ISS) once it is decommissioned.

That’s according to the head of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin. Roscosmos is Russia’s state-run space agency and is responsible for the country’s cosmonautics programs and research. (RT)
