Russia is developing a principally new type of a spaceship for interplanetary flights, the head of the Roscosmos Space Agency told reporters on April 12, which is traditionally marked as Cosmonautics Day in Russia.
He also mentioned the ongoing upgrade of the workhorse Soyuz spaceship with a digital flight control system and a advanced rendezvousing system. Engineers are now working on a new engine and life-support system, Popovkin added.
