26
NASA is still collecting information and negotiating with foreign partners on the construction of the near-moon station, reports RIA News a message from a representative from the agency, Cheryl Warner.




In September, Russia and the United States 2017 signed an agreement of intent to create the near-moon station Deep Space Gateway (renamed Lunar Orbital Platform - Gateway). According to preliminary agreements, the Russian specialists must manufacture a lock chamber for the crews leaving for open space.

NASA is still collecting information on the implementation of the Lunar Orbital Platform - Gateway, including the contribution of foreign partners to it, said Sharil Warner.

Earlier it was reported that the construction of the station will begin in 2022 year, and the Russian compartment is planned to be attached to it in 2024 year. This month, an international technical standards meeting was held, during which the specifications of the near-moon station were discussed.

As a source in the Russian space industry told the agency, Americans are forcing Russians to make a module for the station according to American standards. According to the interlocutor, the requirements for the technical standards by which it is planned to manufacture the nodes and compartments of the near-moon station were discussed by all partners, and this, in addition to the Russian Federation and the United States, were European countries, Canada and Japan. NASA does not comment on the negotiations with either them or the Russian side.

          As for me, we must agree with everyone. And with the Americans, and with the Chinese, and with others. And then on Earth, cf --- sy, let's at least cooperate in space. Our cosmonauts and American astronauts speak very well of each other, call them friends ... They don’t have any politics there ..

            So I completely agree with you ..., only in 2MB our pilots with the Americans also spoke well of each other, and then look, you got along ... They are not normal people, but stupid (in our opinion) policies and at least some love wouldn’t be, alas, there’s always someone to quarrel ...

      According to a source in the Russian space industry, the Americans are forcing Russians to make a module for the station according to American standards.

      ... and will American locks be in the doorway? Our astronauts will be given the keys or not, it is not yet known ...
      But seriously, I wonder how the gateway cameras of the Russian and American standards differ and how is this fraught?

    Who needs it, another big cut of the dough, first restore peace and order on earth, stop violence, war and political lawlessness, let the nations develop freely, and then think about the moons and stars of Anglo-Saxon DB ... but if these attempts for military purposes - it’s doubly DB ....

      It seems to me that there will be no peace on earth until military companies stop pushing through their military orders, and through governments (mainly the United States) start wars around the world. Then humanity can be able to embark on "space tracks". The development of new areas of industry will take place, billionaires will also earn, but in space. But this is costly, not necessary, in short Fantasy!

        First you need to remove the heels of blockbusters in Hollywood, give a dozen Oscars
        And in principle, mission has already been completed. Chest wheel, snot bubbles.
        And then, along the way, maybe something is planned / designed.

      All of humanity needs this - elementary survival. The moon is not an end in itself. The goal is Mars and its colonization. And in the long run flight to other stars.
      This is the basis of the survival of our species. For either a powerful volcanic eruption, or the fall of a large asteroid (comet), or a new glacial, or vice versa global warming, or in the end the man himself - can lead to the death of our species on the planet. The only good news is that even pin_dos think only about loot and power, but there are smart ones among them who promote really worthwhile ideas on greed, and not dermocracy where they are not asked.

      it’s very expensive, NASA has a budget of 20 billion, and Roskosmos has 2 billion, and even so they want to save and build a station with us

    With any budget, it’s cheaper to divide the cost into several participants.

    Both easier and cheaper. But only when the Chinese can "get" to the lunar orbital station. So far they are only going to make an analogue of our DOS "MIR". The Chinese superheavy is planned for 2028.

    Can we? After all, there is nothing to run, even after making a module.
