NASA is thinking about to secure two seats on the Russian Soyuz rockets to transport groups for missions in 2017 and 2018 to the International Space Station (ISS), media announced.
NASA is thinking about to purchase Soyuz seats, through a game plan with Boeing, on the grounds that no different vehicles are presently fit for transporting one group part in 2017, one team part in 2018, and three extra seats in 2019, Space-news wrote about Wednesday.Boeing had gotten the rights to the seats from Soyuz producer RSC Energia. The two seats in 2017 and 2018 got to be distinctly accessible to alternate ISS accomplices after Russia chose to empty them as a cost-sparing measure.
Purchasing these seats for 2017 and 2018 missions will expand US group estimate on the ISS from three to four and amplify ISS science use.In spite of the fact that the space organization has contracts with two US business organizations – Orbital ATK and Space X – for transporting team to the ISS, their vehicles are still in the formative stage and can start completely operational group flights to the ISS by 2019.
The services NASA wants to hire are for the launch of US crew members to the ISS for planned six-month missions, on-orbit rescue services for the duration of six-month missions, provision of emergency rescue services and medical support, their return to the Earth, and post-flight medical support, among others.[button color=”” size=”” type=”square” target=”” link=””][/button]
