Russia begins to colonize the moon in 2030
According to the newspaper “Izvestia”, quoting the draft Concept of the Russian lunar program, in 2030 the Russian Federation intends to place on the surface of our planet’s natural satellite, the Moon, and the basis for landfill mining.
In an April 11 “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” article Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, reported that one of the main strategic objectives of Russia in space exploration is expanding its presence in low-Earth orbits, the colonization of the moon and the beginning of the Mars exploration and other space objects in the solar system.
According to sources, the authors of this project space exploration do not exclude the possibility of involving the implementation of projects related to the moon, private investors. In this first expedition landing astronauts on the moon to establish a permanent lunar base planned to be implemented in 2030.
Experts believe that Russia needs to develop the moon is active, since “in the next 20-30 years the leading space powers will explore and consolidate for a comfortable lunar bridgeheads for future opportunities for practical use.”
Says scientific expert and head of the Space Policy Institute Ivan Moiseev
“The moon is the first step on the way to deep space. Moon in this case it makes sense to use as a promising spaceport. As for the extraction of resources on the moon, then take them back to Earth does not make sense even if in the lunar soil diamonds are found in huge numbers to take them back to our planet will be completely unprofitable. Much more important to start production of oxygen on the moon, he’s present in many compounds. ”
Andrew, son of John of the Academy of Astronautics believes that such large-scale projects such as the development and colonization of the Moon and Mars, are likely to be carried out not at public expense.
“Implementation of such projects as the development of other planets will likely prerogative of private companies,” – says son of Jonah.
“Even now there are such projects that provide colonization of Mars, mining resources on asteroids and similar initiatives. It is difficult to imagine that the government of any country will be ready to spend money to create trillions of lunar bases when they have and so a lot of other important things that need to be addressed, too: medicine, education, the army … Who in their right mind governments will undertake the implementation of such projects, saying its population: we have money for social programs is not, but for the construction of a lunar base there, so let’s start there mineral resources? It’s impossible. ”
As reported by “Izvestia”, Roskosmos explained that all the proposals in the Federal Space Program will undergo a comprehensive review and evaluation at the level of industry experts and academics. If the selected project PCF give the green light, it will be forwarded for further consideration by the government.
