Russia plans to send probe to moon in 2015

Published: 01.15.13, 21:58 / Israel News

Russia will resume a long-dormant quest to explore the moon by sending an unmanned probe there in 2015, the head of the space agency was quoted as saying on Tuesday.

 

The craft, called Luna-Glob, or Moon-Globe, will be carried by the first rocket to blast off from a new facility that Russia is building in its far eastern Amur region and will decrease Russia's reliance on the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the ex-Soviet nation Kazakhstan, which it leases.
