The head of the Russian space agency, Roscosmos, declared this week that Moscow and Beijing will likely build a joint Moon base together.

“Recently, we [together with Director of the China National Space Administration Zhang Kejian] have agreed that we will probably research the Moon and build a Moon research base together – Russia and China,” Roscosmos chief Dmitry Rogozin said on the Solovyev LIVE Youtube channel, reported Russian state news agency TASS.

The Roscosmos chief stressed that he has a lot of respect for his Chinese colleagues. He noted that despite the fact that China has had several accidents this year, “they continue working, continue testing their resolve, they stick to their guns.”

Earlier, Rogozin informed that he had discussed space cooperation with his Chinese partners, namely the construction of a Moon research base. He added that the sides had agreed to take mutual steps in that direction.

Rogozin had egg on his face recently after the SpaceX launch of the SpaceX Crew Dragon vehicle, which delivered two American astronauts to the International Space Station.

Years ago, Russian space head Dmitry Rogozin joked America could “deliver its astronauts to the ISS by using a trampoline”.

“The trampoline is working,” SpaceX head Elon Musk declared last week after the launch.

Actually they would need to lease the Land from the property owners.. The United States… First to arrive.. first to have a permanent residence .. The moon belongs to the US… You really think all these years and NASA’s billions in black funding were for nothing .. The US has been on the Dark side of the Moon for a very long time. Putin is playin the Chinese again.. Russians are welcome at US Moon Facilities anytime.have their own housing and research facilities…. .. LOL
