Russia will establish a moon colony by 2040, the federal space agency announced.

According to officials, getting a human-crewed landing to set up a lunar base is the top priority.

The news comes just after Nasa revealed it plans to take America back to the moon 'to stay' using private firms to run the business.

Rosmocos, the Russian space agency, said it will launch the strategy in three phases.

NASA wants you to make stuff it can send to the Moon

NASA wants you to make stuff it can send to the Moon As we've known for several months now, NASA is headed back to the Moon. The administration will be sending all manner of instruments to the lunar surface to study the natural satellite in greater detail, as well as prepare for the eventual return of a manned mission to the Moon. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Now, with a rough schedule for future launches being hashed out, NASA needs something to actually send to the Moon.

This will include launching an orbital station, then a manned mission and subsequently the construction of a permanent base.

A spokesperson said the agency had pinpointed 'unique regions with favourable conditions for the construction of lunar bases' using a satellite.

'The implementation of the lunar program will be held in several stages until 2040.'

The announcement was made at a joint meeting of the Moscow-based Scientific and Technical Council of Roscosmos and the Space Council of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Officials say the goal of lunar programmes is to ensure national interests are fulfilled in space.

'Moon exploration issues are now heading the agenda of our Space Council. The question is really serious', said the President of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Alexander Sergeyev.

(AP Photo/Dmitri Lovetsky, Pool Photo via AP, File) MOSCOW — The head of Russia's Roscosmos space agency has said that a proposed Russian mission to the moon will be tasked with verifying that the American moon landings were real, though he "We have set this objective to fly and verify whether they've been there or not," said Dmitry Rogozin in a video posted Saturday on Twitter.

'We understand our limited resources. The geopolitical situation is not conducive to attracting these resources.'

'It's impossible to solve earthly problems, not knowing where we are moving in the future,' said Dmitry Rogozin, Director General of the Roscosmos State Corporation.

Just yesterday Nasa revealed it also wants to return to the moon - and set up for good.

The space agency plans to work with nine private firms, ranging from small startups to giants like Lockheed Martin, to develop robotic landers and systems to mine the natural resources on the moon.

Russia will establish a moon colony by 2040 , the space agency announced Getting a human-crewed landing to set up a lunar base is the top priority News comes just after NASA revealed it plans to take America back to the moon using private firms.

This will help develop the technology need for eventual manned missions, and Nasa Administrator Jim Bridenstine pledged to have a manned lunar base within a decade.

The first new lunar missions could blast off as early next year.

'We're building the next chapter of American exploration, returning to the moon - to stay,' the space agency announced.

'I think that it is possible we can have a presence on the moon with humans within a decade,' said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine.

'We're going to utilize the resources of the moon, and take this all the way to Mars

Bridenstine, a former U.S. Navy fighter pilot and Oklahoma congressman tapped by President Donald Trump in April as NASA chief, said the plan was part of Trump's Space Directive-1 policy.

'Today's announcement marks tangible progress in America's return to the Moon's surface to stay,' he said.

He said future bases would be international, and that he hoped the US would lead the plans.

'The innovation of America's aerospace companies, wedded with our big goals in science and human exploration, are going to help us achieve amazing things on the Moon and feed forward to Mars.'

Nasa plans to create a commercial marketplace called the Commercial Lunar Payload Services Program (CLIPS) to develop technology that will eventually establish a continuous Moon presence.

A maximum of $2.6bn is earmarked for the project, and Nasa will also  buy space on commercial robotic landers, along with other customers, to deliver payloads to the lunar surface.

NASA is now being sued by the owner of an Apollo 11 lunar sample bag.
When Apollo 11 astronauts returned from the Moon and handed over the first samples of lunar material ever gathered by human hands it was a monumental moment for NASA and humanity as a whole. It would have been impossible for the astronauts to predict that one of their more mundane pieces of equipment would become the subject of a hefty lawsuit almost half a century later. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.
