Russia Plans To Build A Space Station On The Moon
With the space exploration age soon to be in full force, some countries are trying to get a head start before private companies completely take over. Russia is first up with their plan to make it to the moon.
In 2015, the Russian Space Agency, Roscosmos, will be launching an unmanned spacecraft to the moon with plans of sampling soil. The spacecraft will launch out of the new Amur Region launch pad in Russia called Vostochny cosmodrome.
The New York Times reports that the spacecraft will deliver a 1,100 lb. space exploration vehicle carrying 55 lbs. of scientific equipment. This will be the first of four missions.
Russia also has plans of starting a fully robotic moon base.
