Russia is planning a manned mission to the Moon in 2030-2031, Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) First Deputy Head Alexander Ivanov said on Monday, July 14, reports TASS.
"In our program this (manned mission to the Moon) is scheduled for 2020-2031. This programme (Federal Space Programme for 2016-2025) is being coordinated now," he said.
When asked when the first settlement might be built on the Moon, Ivanov said this question was much more complex and needed additional attention.
