  • They have been hinting to offering circumlunar flights on their website for a long time now.

    For right now I can only imagine them resurrecting something like the old Soviet Zond program, which failed miserably.

    I guess they would buy a Soyuz TMA without the orbital module, strap it on top a Proton and launch on a free return trajectory.

    But this is probably just my lack of imagination. Maybe they got together with space X, or CSNA and are planning something like we have never seen before.

    cool.
