Russia is working on a space transport system that could eventually lead to the industrialization of the moon, a space expert said.
Thirty-eight years after the United States put the first man on the moon, Russia could reach it using Soyuz rockets, the head of the Russian space company RKK Energia, Nikolai Sevastianov, told the Vedomosti daily.
"It is time to think about industrial development of the moon. We are sometimes criticized for making such suggestions too early," Sevastianov was quoted as saying in an interview released on Wednesday.
A flight around the moon would cost about $100 million, Faranetta said.
