Lecture:- The Future Space Exploration Missions of Russia
Currently Russia together with the European Space Agency, is working on the EXOMARS program which is devoted to the search for extinct (or even present) primitive life on Mars. This activity was motivated both by earlier findings of a significant amount of subsurface water in certain Martian regions and the recent discovery of the methane eruptions to the Martian atmosphere. The Russian Lunar program includes several landers (LUNA-25, LUNA-27 and LUNA-28) to explore the south polar regions of the Moon with their permafrost deposits, and one orbiter (LUNA-26) to investigate space plasma in the Lunar vicinity. The main scientific tasks of the Lunar program will be the study of mineralogical, chemical, elemental and isotopic content of the regolith and search for volatiles in the regolith of the polar areas; investigation plasma, neutral and dust exosphere and interaction of the space environment with Lunar surface at the poles. The inner structure of the Moon will be also studied by seismic, radio and laser ranging methods.
