This will create necessary conditions for the breakthrough thus we will be technologically ready to explore space natural resources, solar energy, Moon, Mar and asteroid resources.
The realization of the project will enable to redefine the cooperation and consolidate the potential of all key organizations, first of all Rosatom state corporation, united rocket and space corporation and Roscosmos, coordinate financial resources for efficient and task-oriented use and exclude the financing of similar projects, – he added.
