John Batchelor and I welcomed back Anatoly Zak (www.russianspaceweb.com) for updates with the Russian space plans for 2016 (see www.russianspaceweb.com/2016.html) plus the European-Russian ExoMars Mission (see www.russianspaceweb.com/exomars_2016.html).  Anatoly discussed these plans but spent more time on the critical aspects of ExoMars for both 2016 and 2018.  We talked about Russian quality control for assurances this time so their Mars launch would be successful, plus Anatoly explained why ExoMars was so critical to the Russian space program.  Anatoly also shared with us the early stage development of Russian rocket reusability.
