La Russie s'intéresse de nouveau à la Lune...voir...Mars
In the nearest future, the priority of Russian space exploration will be the Moon.
This was revealed by the Director of the Russian Institute of Space Research Lev Zelyony.At the same time, the priority of the Moon doesn’t mean that Russia rejects its plans to explore Mars, the scientist said.
In November, Russia will launch a space station to one of Mars’s two moons, Phobos, to take samples of its soil.
After that, Russia is panning a project named “Mars-Net”. Several small satellites will fly around Mars and watch the weather on that planet. Work on this project is already under way. Most probably, it will be implemented in 2017.
