Russia’s plans for moon exploration are to be updated within two weeks, but Moscow still wants to have a permanent base on its surface, the head of Russian space agency Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin said. Rogozin, who was appointed Russia’s space chief in May, announced the looming lunar changes in an interview with RIA Novosti, as he was outlining his plans for a major overhaul of the space industry. “We expect the suggestions form the Academy of Sciences and the Science and Technology Council of Roscosmos to come very soon. Within two weeks they are expected to present their vision for exploring Moon,” he said. He didn’t offer further details about how the program may change, but said plans for a surface base would remain in it.
