Research and industrial facilities will emerge based on the International Space Station (ISS), RIA Novosti reported referring to Nikolay Sevastianov, chief of RSC Energia.

”When it comes to ISS, the philosophy is as follows: in future, the station will emerge as a spaceport and whereabouts of spacemen. The plans are to arrange some compact mini-plants and laboratory modules near the station,” Sevastianov explained.

Nowadays, RSC Energia is developing a similar project in tandem with Samara’s Progress Design Bureau. The project provides for the mixture of two technologies. The Parom space shuttle system to be made by Energia will be combined with research facilities, which Progress will develop.

Moreover, RSC Energia has shaped a system of computer animation facilities and simulators to train young cosmonauts. “The matter at stake is the program of computer animation and simulators’ base, so that the young people could try themselves as spacemen,” Sevastianov said.
