John Batchelor and I welcomed back Anatoly Zak for updates on the Russian plans for a new space station, the Russian Orbital Station (ROS). Anatoly talked about much needed technology and hardware updates, the need to rely on older technology early on, including Mir systems. Our guest also talked about the use of Russian gyroscopes for stability, software requirements, ISS applications, and the use of Russian AI and robotics. When asked if Russia planned to spin any part of their ROS for 1 g, he said yes through inflatable structures. Budget issues and the war in Ukraine were also mentioned. This was a one segment Hotel Mars program.
