Topic: Russian space programs
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Tuesday Russia should develop its own space exploration program.
"I believe this is a very important topic, even in terms of our scientific ambitions," Medvedev said. "If we do not do this, we will fall behind."
Russia is not in a position to carry out global space programs single-handedly and should team up with India and Kazakhstan, rocket scientist Boris Chertok said in January.
He said Russian space programs are grossly underfunded compared to similar projects in the United States and China.
Russian researchers are working on an unmanned spacecraft similar to the U.S. Boeing X-37 Orbital Test Vehicle, Space Troops chief Oleg Ostapenko said last month.
Russia's Khrunichev research center plans to develop a new super-heavy carrier rocket that will be used to launch piloted spacecraft to Mars.

Some of the most amazing and creative art I receive is of the Russian Space Program and its accomplishments.
Students in Russia love the space program! It captures their attention and passion like nothing else.
Space programs are also valuable for driving technology.
So I agree 100% with an increased Russian space program. Only good things can come from this.

The Ozone Layer Can Be Recovered Artificially Using Space Technologies and Chemical Theories.
This will stand-in for natural recovery posited to occur in 50years.
Details of the Study Is Reported At:
Man may need to resort to this since effects of Climate Change and Ozone Depletion affects his and the environment.

This research is extremely important for man and the environment since in-50 years natural repair may not do for today combinational effects of ozone depletion and climate change.
The growing outright rivalry between the United States and China gives Russia more foreign policy weight, enabling it to assume the role of a balancer. So far it has been doing so rather skillfully. Today it may participate in a joint naval exercise with China that Beijing positions as outwardly anti-American. But tomorrow it can team up with the naval forces of the Old World.
