Submission + - Joint Russian/NASA Moon Colony in the Works (

milbournosphere writes: Russia and NASA are reportedly in talks to create a colony on the moon. They're looking to create either a base on the moon itself or a permanent space station in orbit around the moon.
"We don’t want the man to just step on the Moon,” agency chief Vladimir Popovkin said in an interview with Vesti FM radio station. “Today, we know enough about it. We know that there is water in its polar areas," he added. "We are now discussing how to begin [the Moon’s] exploration with NASA and the European Space Agency."
