As the head of the NASA manned flights program, Katie Luders, said during the international Gagarin conference organized by Roscosmos in conjunction with the Russian Foreign Ministry, the NASA leadership plans to extend the work on the ISS for another 10 years and is working in this direction.
We are working hard to extend the ISS operation for at least another 10 years, and this will play a decisive role in future research. We have worked this out in our administration and are now on track to publish our plans for the next 10 years.
Katie Luders, Head of NASA’s Manned Flight Program
NASA is working with various partners to confirm the station’s ability to operate for at least another ten years and ensure the best use of the ISS. This is important for the continuation of scientific research.
Operation of the International Space Station ends in 2028.
Also in early September 2021, Roscosmos CEO Dmitry Rogozin announced that the start of the deployment of the Russian Orbital Service Station (ROSS) is planned in five to six years.
