MOSCOW, July 14, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia is planning a manned mission to the Moon in 2030-2031, Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) First Deputy Head Alexander Ivanov said on Monday, July 14.
“In our programme this [manned mission to the Moon] is scheduled for 2020-2031. This programme [Federal Space Programme for 2016-2025] is being coordinated now,” he said.
When asked when the first settlement might be built on the Moon, Ivanov said this question was much more complex and needed additional attention.
