"The return trip to the moon is possible"he confirmed André-Hubert Roussel, the chairman of the & # 39; s group, who even proclaims it "convinced that the conquest of space is essential for the future of the human being in general".
"Europe must be put in its place", continue, in 2019 draws the fiftieth anniversary of & # 39; the first steps of & # 39; American Americans Neil Armstrong over the month "The ESA strives to live and why not make a future exploration outpost".
In this sense, ArianeGroup signed a contract with the European Agency. The mission would be their goal "the exploitation of regolit, a mineral from which it is possible to create water and sewage, thereby making an autonomous human presence at a month positive and also fuel consuming essential mission ", according to a statement from a group.
Such a mission is something for Europe, though it is not yet about sending people to the moon.
In addition, only three countries have launched on the lunar surface, 384,000 km of earth: Russia, the United States and China, which recently made the landscape of an artifact on the hidden side of & # 39; a satellite. This world confirmed the land as a space shuttle.
The United States and Russia, but also India or Israel, are also in races, including international cooperation in some projects.
The research commissioned ArianeGroup, which & # 39; t be in & # 39; en end of & # 39; will be presented a year, "is part of ESA's global plan to investigate an important partner in Europe [espacial] in the coming decade "He explained David Parker, director of the Human Exploration and Robotics branch of the European agency.
"The use of space resources could end the key for a sustainable exploration of the month", he said.
The means from one month to another go from basalt to helium 3, a cut isotope on earth, but common in & # 39; a star that uses this theory to generate energy for earth.
But the main goal of & # 39; s researchers is water in & # 39; an ice from & # 39; months of & # 39; remove a month to divide it into hydrogen and oxygen; two gases that can be separated from the bum.
