NASA and Roscosmos have announced they will work together on space exploration ventures.
NASA said they share a common vision for space exploration and will work on new projects – including the Deep Space Gateway.
The Deep Space Gateway is a project planned by NASA involving the placement of a space station in lunar space.
The lunar base will serve as a staging area for interplanetary missions and is a key component in getting humans to Mars.
NASA said it has been evaluating habitation concepts for the gateway and for deep space transport.
