European Space Agency’s version of a permanent lunar base.
Before 2030, Russia plans to land its first cosmonauts on the moon, and Europe wants a piece of the action.

On Tuesday, at a space and technology conference in Moscow, the head of Roscosmos Energia — Russia’s version of NASA — announced: “A manned flight to the moon and lunar landing is planned for 2029.”
And the European Space Agency (ESA), who made history last year by landing the first ever spacecraft on a comet, is teaming up.
