The Corporation is preparing proposals to create a transport module that can land on the surface of the Earth’s natural satellite
Rocket and Space Corporation (RSC) Energia began to work out the concept of a module for transporting goods between the moon and the lunar orbital station.
This was reported by a TASS source in the rocket and space industry.
“Energia is preparing proposals to create a lunar transport module that can land on the surface of the Earth’s natural satellite and then take off.
The main purpose of the device is to deliver cargo both from the station to the moon and vice versa,” the source said.
RSC Energia was unable to provide TASS with operational comment.
According to Dmitry Rogozin, director general of Roscosmos, at the Vostochny cosmodrome cosmodrome, the corporation plans to create a “universal elevator” that will be able to lower cargo from the near-moon station to the moon by order of international partners.
The head of the corporation noted that the project can be commercialized to compensate for the money spent on the development and creation of the cargo module.
