Majority of Russians believe that Russia should be first to build a Moon Space Station


© NASA/Jeff Williams Russia should be the first to build a base at the Moon and take every possible measure to send first cosmonauts to Mars, the fifty percent of our country’s population believe. The results of research conducted by All-Russia Public Opinion Studies Center showed.

At this, almost eighty percent of the respondents agreed that Russia should collaborate with all space powerful nations. Less than twenty percent of people think that Russia should conquer the solar system on its own.

Besides, more than a half of Russians do not suppose that the expenditures on space programmes should be altered. Fifteen percent of people propose to cut the expenses and twenty percent of population would increase the financing.

In the view of experts, Russian population sees many pragmatic aspects in space development, not just some romantic appeal of space flights. Russians would love to occupy leading positions in all major projects, but, at this, they prefer to share the expenses. They would like to get some practical results out of the space science and not just the feeling of satisfaction with our scientific and industrial achievements.
