It is planned to launch into space the domestic space station "Boomerang". With its help, Russia is preparing a mission to deliver soil from the satellite of Mars.
This was reported by TASS, referring to the documents in his possession, owned by NPO named after Lavochkin, which is part of the state corporation "Roscosmos".
Phobos, a natural satellite of the planet Mars, should become the goal of the expedition.. The mission is going to be carried out after 2030 of the year. The station will be delivered by the Angara launch vehicle.. It will be launched from the Vostochny Cosmodrome.
The mission is the initial stage in the implementation of a larger project "Expedition-M", which involves solving a number of problems. We are talking about the study of the satellites Phobos and Deimos, revolving in martian orbit. They will be carried out by contact methods, as well as remote. probably, in the future, the station is planned to land on the second satellite of Mars - Deimos.
The difficult moment of the mission will be the landing of the apparatus on the surface of Phobos, because gravity doesn't work here. Eventually, the station should automatically take soil samples and return to Earth. It is assumed, that the return vehicle will land on Russian territory at the end of the mission.
Other countries are also very keenly interested in the exploration of Mars and its satellites.. The United States is preparing its Martian missions, EU and China. used photos:https://www.lpi.usra.edu/
