From Russia, with Love

The Russians have got the right idea.  

Check out this Spectrum article: Russia Reveals Vision for Manned Spaceflight

Firstly, they named their space agency Roskosmos, which is just awesome.  RosKOSMOS, like cosmos?!  That's deep man.

Secondly, they've got the groundbreaking idea to unite international space organizations, like themselves and our very own NASA, in order to make space exploration CHEAPER while still going where no man has gone before?  Like Mars!

Of course, there are some kinks to work out, seeing as though they built their launching spot right on the Chinese border, which I'm pretty sure Hu Jintao isn't too happy about . . . But you never know, if the Russians share their super secrets, it may just help border relations! . . . possibly. 

Anyway, I believe this way of thinking is what WILL finally get us to Mars, to infinity, AND BEYOND!

  1. It will be interesting to see if they adopt a Zubrin-esque Mars Direct type of mission http://www.spectrum.ieee.org/aerospace/space-flight/how-to-go-to-marsright-now or a giant Wernher Von Braun type of behemoth battlestar type of mission that will cost a lot and do little.

  2. I don't know about you, but I think its high time someone started building a spaceship that is higher tech than what we have now. I'm guessing the economy has to get better first before the US government starts putting money towards it though. There has to be some rich billionaire out there who wants to further human endeavors into space.
