MOSCOW, June 11 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s Federal Space Agency (Roskosmos) will involve Russian universities in the implementation of the Federal Space Program for a period up to 2015, Roskosmos head Vladimir Popovkin said on Tuesday.
“We will create a unified with universities program of student and research spacecraft for university science. In particular, we have already agreed with university rectors that we will look together how university science can be involved in the implementation of the Federal Space Program,” Popovkin told reporters after a meeting of the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) in Moscow.
He said that Roskosmos is already completing the development of the concept of the Federal Space Program until 2025. “And at the initial stage of the work we want to determine where and how they (universities) can help us,” Popovkin stressed.
He added that the Roskosmos leadership is currently considering ways of giving a new impetus to scientific research in the sphere of manned space flights. “We are thinking about ways of giving a new impetus to scientific research on the International Space Station (ISS),” the head of the Russian Federal Space Agency said.
