ASTANA, September 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Kazakhstan has announced plans to develop and assemble spacecraft towards the end of 2016.
The aerospace committee of the republic's Ministry for Investments and Development announced on Monday that a proposed national space center would offer services from design to assembly and testing of space vehicles for domestic and export clients.
Detailing the plans to journalists, Meirbek Moldabekov, deputy head of the republic's Kazcosmos space agency, said an experimental design bureau and plant would be set up in the city of Astana.
