Russia and China will build base on the Moon


Russia plans to establish a permanent research station on the Moon, probably in collaboration with China, says the leader of Roskosmos.

  • Russia and China have recently decided that we will most likely establish a lunar base together, says the head of the Russian space agency Dmitry Rogozin.

Russia has previously stated that a manned lunar mission could only be considered in ten years, and Rogozin says nothing about the time aspect of the plan with China.

In recent years, China has invested heavily in space travel and sent a space probe to Mars no later than this week.
