MOSCOW, January 27. /TASS/. Moscow could propose to China and India to create a joint manned orbital station at the summit of the BRICS emerging economies in Russia’s Ufa in July, a document drafted by the expert council at Russia’s military and industrial commission said on Tuesday.
The experts recommend “working out the possibilities of an international manned project with BRICS countries as part of a common strategy of creating technological alliances.”
“We can start this work now and include the issue in the agenda of the BRICS business council in Ufa,” the document reads.
In particular, Russia should make such a proposal to India and China, which have been actively developing their manned space programs, the experts suggest.
Other perspective areas for further research could be modular rockets using methane as fuel and also the creation of an aerospace vehicle, which could be used in the future to construct a fighter or a bomber of the sixth generation.
