China and Russia to build a data center for scientific research in space

China and Russia are joining forces to build a joint data center for deep space exploration.

On behalf of their governments, Russia’s Roscosmos space agency and China’s National Space Administration signed a series of MoUs (memorandum of understanding) that will see both parties come together to establish an International Lunar Research Station to strengthen scientific research on space.

In a joint statement, China and Russia state that the new research station will be a “comprehensive scientific experiment base that can carry out multi-disciplinary and multi-objective scientific research activities.”

Zhang Hanhui, the Chinese Ambassador to Russia, also commented that deep, extended collaboration between both countries for the past 30 years has seen the delivery of fruitful results in many fields in deep space exploration, including earth observation and the production of aerospace electronic components.
