Manned Russian Moon Missions Unlikely
Anatoly Perminov, the former director general of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, has downplayed the prospect that Russia will have manned space missions to the Moon. In recent weeks, Roscosmos chief Vladimir Popovkin disclosed that Russian astronauts may land on the Moon in 2020. Perminov, who stepped down last year as director general of Roscosmos and is now deputy director general of the agency’s joint-stock company, Russian Space Systems, was dismissive when asked about the reports. He says the agency has plans, but they have yet to receive government approval. The proposals are due to be presented to the government in March, he adds. But whether approval is forthcoming remains to be seen because Russia’s presidential elections will take place on March 4, Perminov says. He spoke to Aviation Week on the sidelines of the Global Space & Satellite Convention in Singapore. Perminov declined to comment on why Russia is interested in exploring the Moon. But Surrey Satellite Chairman Martin Sweeting addressed the same conference and said that last year’s discovery of water on the Moon is a more significant event than people realize. “In the long term, it will transform the way we explore the Solar System. Not next year, but in a few years’ time.” Anatoly Perminov, the former director general of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, has downplayed the prospect that Russia will have manned space missions to the Moon.
