Russia and Italy intend to develop a series of joint space programs
The specific projects will be submitted for consideration by late 2004 - early 2005. The Federal Space Agency (FSA) told RIA Novosti that these issues along with many others had been discussed earlier in Rome by FSA Head Anatoly Perminov and Sergio Vetrella, president of the Italian Space Agency. The space agencies' heads stated that Russia and Italy were open for cooperation in development of booster launchers and use of the Italian rocket range in Malindi (Kenia). At the same time, the sides expressed their anxiety to carry out joint programs on the Earth remote sensing, the Universe exploration and manned space flights. The FSA noted that the Russian and Italian space agencies' cooperation was also proved by the fact that a month ago an Italian delegation had visited the Plesetsk space port (North of Russia) and become familiar with the Rokot space rocket system. At the same time, scheduled for June 29 from the Kazakhstan-based Baikonur space port is the Dniepr booster launch, which will orbit the Unisat-3 microsatellite crafted by the Roman La Sapienza University's students. The Russian delegation's visit to Italy will end on June 25.
