Russian Space Chief: ‘We’re Talking About Establishing Permanent Bases’ On the Moon

By Clay Dillow Posted 05.23.2012 at 1:07 pm

Yesterday, the heads of the space agencies for Europe, Canada, Russia, India, and Japan met in Washington D.C. (without NASA, which had all hands on deck for the SpaceX launch in Florida). The most interesting topic of conversation? The moon, which seems to be the destination on everyone’s agenda except for NASA. And for Russia, it’s less a destination and more a frontier for colonization.

      Hi dcn 🙂
      It`s more like a new strategic point. The country that will control the moon first will have an enormous tactical advantage. That`s if the moon is not already full of US and/or Russian bases.

        Yes who knows that could be a possibility.
        Moonmen v earthmen
        could get interesting. 😉
