Russia plans Moon landing as it ramps up its space programme
Several key mission failures blemished Russia’s space exploration last year in spite of its launch rate surpassing that of the US and China. But a boost in its budget for the next seven years could help give the nation’s space programme a new lease of life.
RUSSIA has announced an ambitious space programme which could see the nation dominating modern space exploration - and salvage its reputation after a slew of failed space missions in 2012.
