Russian space milestones set

In wet concrete, anyways. Dates announced include

  • Continued use of the ISS until around 2024
  • Their own orbital station by around 2025
  • Send manned missions to the moon around 2030

Hmmmmmmm….I wonder if this means the ISS will be available for leasing or outright purchase in 2025? Presumably Bigelow will have at least one station of their own up by then — might there be cheaper options for NASA than the ISS by 2025?

Also note that the manned Lunar mission has slipped from previous estimates. Sigh…now I’ll have to move it to 2030 in the “Future Milestones” side panel –>
