Russia's federal space agency says it will display a full-scale Martian station at the Paris Air Show, which opens next week in Le Bourget, France.

Aside from the Mars station, part of Russia's Paris Air Show display will be dedicated to its international program to launch Russia's Soyuz boosters in French Guiana - including an inside peek at the Soyuz-2 launch vehicle.

"Along with spacecraft, Russian aerospace manufacturers are to display rocket engines, automatic systems and instruments," a spokesman for the Roskosmos space agency told Novosti, Russia's official news agency.

The Paris Air Show starts Monday and opens to the public June 17.
