According to recent article from electronicsweekly the Falcon Heavy rocket will deploy and provide launch services for two modules of the future space station. PPE and HALO are foundational elements of the Gateway becoming the official replacement of the International Space Station. The Nasa Lunar Gateway will be responsible for seeing to the critical life support of astronauts during missions under the Artemis mission.
The replacement of Nasa's international space station will consist of two modules one being named the "Power and Propulsion Element" which is also known as PPE. It can be describled as an "60-kilowatt class solar electric propulsion spacecraft" used to support the Artemis mission.
The replacement of Nasa's international space station will use another module named the "Habitation and Logistics Outpost" for support to the Artemis mission.
The original NASA international space station has a size of 356 feet (109 meters) from end-to-end. Nasa mentioned the size of the international space station to be equivalent to the length of one football field including both end zones. The (ISS) NASA international space station was a multinational collaborative project involving a total of five space agencies United States (NASA), Russia (Roscosmos), Japan (JAXA), Europe (ESA), and Canada (CSA). Evolving from the Spacecraft "Freedom" in 1984 and even in 1976 the International space station was proposed.
Many of the Major (ISS) Nasa international space station modules have been launched by Russian Rockets such as the Soyuz.
According to livescience, when the ISS is fully assembled the total weight will be around 450 tons (408,000 kg). The international space station 450 times the weight of an average car.
