Russia should have its own deep space program – Medvedev Itar-Tass
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev believes that Russia should develop its own program for the exploration of deep space in general and the Moon in particular. “I think this is a very important topic, even in terms of our scientific ambitions. If we fail to address it at all, we shall degrade and will be pushed to the sidelines,” the president said at a meeting with young scientists on Tuesday.
Medvedev admitted that he could not promise such a program would be ready in one year’s time, “which would let us catch up with the Americans.”
