Russia Plans Moon, Venus, Mercury Exploration Projects, RIA Says

Russia’s Academy of Sciences plans several projects to explore the moon, Venus and Mercury in the next 20 years, RIA Novosti said citing a draft program on solar system exploration.

Russia plans to send two moon rovers after 2020 and several landing stations after 2022 to form a lunar practice ground for exploring the satellite’s polar areas, RIA said.

Scientists are also planning to launch the Venus-D lander, an orbital unit and a satellite after 2024 to explore Venus’s atmosphere and geology, the agency said. The country’s plan for the first-ever lander to Mercury won't be for at least 20 years, later than an earlier target of 2019, RIA said.
