Russians to invest $50 billion on new space program

http://www.popsci.com/technology/art...-space-program

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced plans for a new space initiative today. That includes shelling out more than $50 billion over the next seven years to complete the country's Vostochny cosmodrome, modernize rockets, and eventually send cosmonauts to the moon and even Mars.

I know some people think it's a space race, but there's already one going on, it's just that the race is more about technology and commercial involvement rather than nationalist propaganda.
