Moscow along with Washington have agreed to build the station called Deep Space Gateway – finally bringing a long standing concept into reality.

Russia’s space agency Roscosmos announced the ambitious project today in a speech at International Astronautical Congress in Adelaide, Australia.

Following inside footsteps of the International Space Station, the moon ship would likely be open to astronauts along with cosmonauts via around the globe.

Space bosses wish the Deep Space Gateway will allow mankind to stage space flights to Mars along with elsewhere inside Solar System.

of which comes after US President Donald Trump announced in his debut speech on Capitol Hill he wanted astronauts to arrive on “distant worlds” within the next ten years.

NASA along with Roscosmos wish the space station’s first modules would likely be completed by 2026 – the 250th anniversary of the United States.

“We have agreed to join the project to build a completely new international Deep Space Gateway station inside moon’s orbit,” Russian space chief Igor Komarov said.

The space station could provide a staging point for the proposed Deep Space Transport vessel – which would likely ferry astronauts around the solar system.

of which will be hoped technology developed for the Deep Space Gateway could be implemented into surface bases on the Moon along with Mars.

In a mission statement for the project, NASA said: “NASA will be leading the next steps into deep space near the moon, where astronauts will build along with begin testing the systems needed for challenging missions to deep space destinations including Mars.

“The area of space near the moon offers a true deep space environment to gain experience for human missions of which push farther into the solar system, access the lunar surface for robotic missions nevertheless with the ability to return to Earth if needed in days rather than weeks or months.”

The space agency added: “The gateway along with transport could potentially support mission after mission as a hub of activity in deep space near the moon, representing multiple countries along with agencies with partners via both government along with private industry.

“NASA will be open to completely new ideas of both a technical along with programmatic nature suggestions as we develop, mature along with implement This specific plan.”

Speaking in March, Trump said, “American footprints on distant worlds are not too big a dream” along with added all was possible if, “we set free the dreams of our people”.

The announcement comes at a key time for Washington along with Moscow, as relations remain strained over links to the US Election, the war in Syria along with Russia’s annexation of Crimea.

Experts have previously warned crumbling relationships between Russia along with the US – the globe’s undisputed leading space powers – could impact mankind’s expansion into the Milky Way.
