    Arrow Russia Reveals Plans for Base on the Moon - Intends to Build a Base on the Moon Within 20 Years

    Russia reveals plans for base on the moon - Russia has announced that it intends to build a base on the moon within 20 years, which it plans to use as a staging post for a manned mission to Mars.

    Russia has announced that it intends to build a base on the moon within 20 years, which it plans to use as a staging post for a manned mission to Mars.


    The promise was made as Vladimir Putin, the prime minister, chaired a meeting on Russia's space program ahead of the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin becoming the first man in space.


    The Kremlin is using Tuesday's anniversary to boost patriotic sentiment and briefing documents handed out prior to the Mr Putin's meeting showed it is determined to restore the nation's space -program to its Soviet-era glory.


    "Above all, we are talking about flights to the moon and the creation of a base close to its north pole where there is likely to be a source of water," the briefing document said.


    A manned mission to Mars would be possible after 2030, the report added.


    Mr Putin said Russia was already responsible for 40 per cent of all space launches but said it could do better. "I think we can up that by five or even 10 per cent in the foreseeable future," he said.


    The Kremlin is pouring more money into its program with plans for a new cosmodrome and a new spacecraft well advanced.


    However, Alexander Serebrov, a former cosmonaut, said that talk of a moon base was premature. He said: "Our scientists are of an age that means they will not live to see these things and therefore they do not care what they say."

    I'm happy it is a White Country and one that doesn't care for Multi Cult and PC.
    I grew up on a belief of honour, courage and the old world values. The world isn't about that anymore, preferring to die a slow death of fast food and cheap thrills.

    This is an extremely ambitious undertaking for the Russians, given the state of their economy and their demographic decline.

    I doubt that this is realistic, but it might cause other space agencies to accelerate their plans. Obama pretty much scrapped all US plans for space exploration, but perhaps China, Japan or even the EU will be planting their flags on other planets in the future.

    This is actually really funny. They make a claim based on facts not proven + as Sindig_og_stoisk said it's way too ambitious for them. That said, this is just another "blah-blah" that doesn't lead anywhere.
    As for America, EU, Japan, or anyone else... well... Americans are cutting budget (nothing going on there), EU can't get it's things together on anything (nothing going on there either), Japan suffered greatly from the earthquake and won't get back on it's feat for at least a couple of years (something ambitious like this would take a lot longer),... and so on. China has a big science and production potential and they don't cut on nothing so they would be the only ones that could pull out something like that in the near future, however I doubt it.
    Shortly, we spend too much resources into market economy and consumer politics (pretty-shiny) and science suffers badly. Until that changes I don't think we'll see manned mars colonies in at least 500 years.

    I don't see this happening. While the Russians have considerable expertise in space exploration, they just don't have the available cash to spend on such a large project with zero return on investment.

    The Russian economy is only about equal in size to that of the UK or France and barely 1/6th that of the U.S economy.

    If anyone other than the U.S will put a base on the moon it will be China or some combination of states like the EU +Japan and/or Russia. But certainly not Russia alone.
    Close observation may result in feelings of horror, wonder and awe at world you find yourself inhabiting.

    ESA is highly unlikely to reach the moon. At the moment all our astronauts are launched in to space using Russian equipment. The only things they launch in to space themselves are satellites. Russia might actually be able, since they know how to work on a budget.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    If it was to be built, it sounds like it would be paradise to me. No law, no coloreds and serenity.

    Don't worry, they'd pass the law that 50% of personnel employed at the space colonies must be of "minority" (non-white)

    Or 100% must be of mixed race - to make a statement that this colony is one of "All Humankind" even though they all look coffee coloured. Thus negating caucasions and Asians anyway.
