Russia is going to launch a new wave of lunar probes

17
Russia is developing an updated program to study the moon with robotic probes, and plans for this program were announced by Igor Mitrofanov from the Moscow Institute for Space Research at the 54 Micro-Symposium, called "Lunar Farside and Poles - New Destination for Exploration", the annual Conference of the Moon and Planets, held in March in the woodlands, texas.


Russia is going to launch a new wave of lunar probesThe schedule for the next five years looks something like this:

2015 g. - Moon 25 (Luna-Globe descent module): A small landing gear that will explore the regolith and the exosphere of the moon, being placed at its south pole.

2016 g. - Moon 26 (Luna-Glob orbital module): The orbital probe will be placed in a lunar orbit at an altitude of 100 km, from where it can make detailed maps of the lunar surface.

2017 g. - Moon 27 (Luna-Resource-1): A large descent module that will investigate the regolith and the exosphere of the Moon, and also will test a new drilling system designed to collect samples of lunar soil for later storage in a cryogenic chamber.

2019, 2020 - Moon 28 (Luna-resource-2), Luna 29 (Luna-resource-3): - these missions are a continuation of the cryogenic experiments at Luna-resource-1 station, and they can be launched if the first station successfully completes its mission.

      The main thing is that there should not be any breakdowns, not like with Phobos-soil. The quantity, of course, pleases, but let it be adjacent to quality!

    Well, if there is a desire and opportunity, why not fulfill it. And in light of the fact that China also announced its lunar program, it will be interesting to compare what happens to anyone.

    Nice to hear good news from our space industry. Recently, only the lazy did not kick them, and we already began to instill in the media such an idea that Russia is an outsider. Ann is not. Like in the song, Not yet evening, not yet evening
    The road is still bright and the eyes are clear.
    So wish good luck to us laughing

    can in the end make NORMAL photos of old American junk of Apollo allegedly abandoned in 1969-72, besides everyone is interested in SEARCHING STARS FROM THE SURFACE OF THE MOON in photographs or not. Bring more soil to do analyzes. Imagine if there is NO LAUGHTER on the pictures of Amer’s iron WILL BE. laughing

    well, or one of the goals.

    As they say, Russia has two allies - the Army and the Navy. Now I would add - Science, and therefore it must also be strengthened to be developed!

    NDA, it seems that they will get old projects and build them again, it seems like new breakthrough projects at Roscosmos have no brains. sad
