International Space Station

The International Space Station program is the next logical step in the progress of space science.

Through the efforts of, primarily, Soviet and Russian space science, the feasibility of long-duration missions has been proven, and the major areas of work on the development of in-orbit production facilities have been defined.

The ISS project pools the resources, scientific achievements and experience of western countries and Russia, promotes development of national economies and efficient use of space in the interests of the world community, and understanding between the nations.

Construction of the International Space Station is a necessary step in the development of mankind in what regards the utilization of Earth and Solar system resources.
