Russia hopes to join NASA's moon exploration program with technology and know how, a Russian space agency spokesman said Thursday. Igor Panarin said Russia was conducting talks with NASA and voiced hope that a deal could be reached within months. "We want the agreement to reflect Russia's status as a great space power," he told The Associated Press, adding that Russia plans to contribute technology rather than money to NASA's project. NASA said Monday that it would send a four-astronaut crew to the moon in 2020 and set up an international base camp on one of the moon's poles that would be permanently staffed by 2024.
