Russia Takes Action To Move People To Moon And Mars

Russia's new spacecraft named "Oryol" has begun preparations for manned flight to the Moon and Mars.

Elon Musk's space company SpaceX and the American Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA continue to work to send astronauts to the Moon and Mars in the coming years.

Russia, which does not want to lag behind the United States in the space race, looks further than orbital space travel.

Igor Khamits, chief designer of Russia's latest spacecraft  Oryol, made striking statements to the Russian Federal Space Agency. Khamits said they could take people to asteroids, Mars and the Moon with Oryol.

Stating that one of the main missions of the spacecraft is to make crewed flights to the Moon, Khamits says that they can also take people to Mars.

Russia's Oryol vehicle will first start unmanned missions in 2023 and will perform its first crewed mission in 2025. The capsule is also scheduled for an uncrewed flight around the Moon in 2028.

Within the scope of NASA's Artemis project, the first thing it wants to do is to land at the South Pole of the Moon. NASA sees Artemis as a step in laying the foundation for permanent structures on the Moon, settling down and ultimately sending humans to Mars in the long term.

Within the scope of the Artemis program, there are three finalized flights so far. If everything goes as planned in these missions to be carried out in 2021, 2022 and 2024, flights will continue until 2030.
