Russia's Science - Power and Prichal Nodal modules are expected to be delivered and attached to the International Space Station in 2021 and 2022, respectively, and to later help to form the first building blocks of the country's new Space Station. New scientific and energy modules set to be attached to the Russian segment of ISS will receive domestically - engineered body armour fabric - base anti - meteorite protection, according to Space Engineering and Technology, official journal of Russia's Energia rocket and Space corporation. Basalt and body armour fabrics on which the structure of the buffer shield is based are comparable in terms of their properties to Nextel and Kevlar fabrics used in shielding on NASA modules, article, written by material's developers, points out that NASA engineers actively participated in creating shielding for Zarya, first Module of ISS, with much of Russian - design Module built using US money in late 1990s. Similar protection was provided for the Nauka Multipurpose Laboratory Module, long - planned ISS Research, docking and cargo Module being developed by Roscosmos which is expected to go online in mid - 2020. Russia is expected to build the Orbital pilot Assembly and Experiment Complex, low Earth orbit Space Station sometime in the 2020s. The station will use Russian - made components from the ISS which are expected to be removed when the International Station ends its operations in mid - 2020s. In addition to carrying out functions of the traditional Space Station, OPSEK is envisioned as a staging area for assembly of components for man spacecraft carrying out missions to the Moon, Mars, and other planets. Iss has long been shielded by multiple layers of Nextel and Kevlar body armour fabric, which blanket the Station in order to protect it against meteorites and other forms of space debris. Last week, India successfully tested a new anti - satellite weapon, destroying the Microsat - R satellite in low - Earth orbit. Test have led to international criticism about the use of weapons in space, and caused concerns regarding operation of the ISS, with leftover fragments of satellites and missiles posing a threat, albeit highly unlikely one, to the Station's operations, according to Russian Space experts.
