ISS illustration (NASA) The Russian space agency Roscosmos announced Tuesday it plans to continue to participate in the International Space Station to 2024, then take its modules to form a new station. The Roscosmos statement is the first time the Russian government formally endorsed extending operations of the ISS beyond 2020, more than a year after the US government announced plans to do so. However, Roscosmos said that in 2024 it would take its ISS modules and use them as the basis for a new space station, raising questions about the future of the ISS beyond 2024.
