Russia, China Strike Deal to Jointly Explore Outer Space

MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Russian State Space Corporation Rosсosmos and the China National Space Administration signed on Saturday the agreement of intent for cooperation in the sphere of exploration of the Moon and the Outer space as well as on the creation of the Joint Data Center on the Lunar projects, the corporation said in a statement.

According to the statement, the State Corporation Roscosmos and the China National Space Administration aim to cooperate in the sphere of exploration of the Moon and the Outer space as well as on the establishment of the Joint Data Center on the Lunar projects.

"The sides have expressed readiness to consider the possibility of cooperation on the implementation of the Russian mission to launch the Luna-Resurs-1 (Luna-26) orbital spacecraft in 2022, as well as on the planned Chinese mission for landing in the region of the southern pole of the Moon in 2023," the corporation added.

The agreement was signed at the ongoing International Space Exploration Forum (ISEF) in Tokyo.

The Russian-Chinese cooperation on the exploration of outer space is developing rapidly. On June 25, 2016, the two governments signed an agreement pact that sets out a legal frame work for protecting their rights to sensitive space technologies in joint projects, Russian state space agency Roscosmos said.

Re: Russia, China Strike Deal to Jointly Explore Outer Space

I think this is another sign of the established space players becoming increasingly concerned about Space X's amazing progress. 

Generally, I don't mean to be rude, but I think people here completely underestimate the influence of politics on space activity.

I think both the Russians and the Chinese can see Musk getting to the Moon and establishing huge lunar tourism facilities,  before they are out of the starting blocs,  and then colonising Mars.  I think they are concerned. 

We should expect some kind of anti-Musk initiative to come out of the UN soon, at the behest of the Russians and Chinese I think.

'The head of Russia's space agency on Monday suggested Moscow would withdraw from the International Space Station in 2025 unless Washington lifted sanctions on the space sector that were hampering Russian satellite launches.'
