Traveling to and from cislunar space will help NASA and its partners gain the knowledge and experience necessary to venture beyond the moon and into deep space.

In a separate statement, Roscosmos officials said the new partnership would "develop worldwide technical standards ... for the establishment of the station in the near-moon orbit".

Nasa said it had already engaged industry partners in gateway concept studies, while Roscosmos and other space station partner agencies were preparing to do the same. That mission, which would see astronauts orbiting the planet rather than actually touching down, is still being conceptualized. "At the first stage we will construct an orbital part with the further goal of implementing the fulfilled technologies on the Moon, and later on Mars", Komarov said, speaking at the International Astronautical Congress in Australia.

"Building a strategic capability for advancing and sustaining human space exploration in the vicinity of the Moon will require the best from NASA, interested worldwide partners, and USA industry", explained NASA in a post on their official website.

The statement reflected a "common vision for human exploration", Nasa said, as it worked on its "deep space gateway" concept. Other worldwide partners might also come onboard to work alongside the United States and Russian Federation.

The agreement didn't give details about funding or engineering specifics, but the Boeing Co. and Lockheed Martin Corp. were reportedly asked to create risk-reduction and construction plans for the new station.

NASA plans to expand the human presence into the solar system, starting in the vicinity of the moon, using its new deep space exploration transportation systems.

Space exploration is one of the few areas where global cooperation between Russian Federation and the USA has not been wrecked by tensions over Ukraine, Syria and elsewhere.

"The station will be a serious platform for future research", he said. The Deep Space Gateway agreement is important for a number of reasons.

Sending the first man into space in 1961 and launching the first Sputnik satellite four years earlier are among key accomplishments of the Soviet space programme and remain a major source of national pride in Russian Federation.
