MOSCOW, March 26 (Itar-Tass) – The Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) is planned to make a flight over the Moon on a prospective piloted spaceship after 2030, deputy head of the system designing centre of the Central Scientific-Research Institute of Machine-Building Anatoly Malchenko told reporters at the forum Infospace-2013 on Tuesday.
He recalled that the United States is planning to make a flight over the Moon on its new piloted spaceship by 2021. “For us this task is impossible by 2021, but we set this task by 2030,” he noted. “After 2030 a piloted spaceship will make a flight over the Moon. But this will be not just a flight, but a flight for research,” he remarked.
The main works are now focused on the creation of a prospective piloted spaceship of new generation and the creation of an infrastructure, which will provide for the operation of this spaceship, Malchenko underlined.
