Space agencies will coordinate Moon and Mars missions

EsaFourteen space agencies have agreed to co-ordinate future space exploration of the Moon and Mars.

They have published a document that contains their common space goals, agreed after months of discussion.

The document outlines the rationale for society to explore space and the current interest in returning to the Moon and exploring Mars.

The document is non-binding, instead proposing a framework for the future co-ordination of space programmes.

The US space agency (Nasa) says the document, called The Global Exploration Strategy: The Framework for Co-ordination, will help different countries exchange information on their space plans.
