NASA Administrator Applauds Russian-U.S. Cooperation in Space as Better Than Ever

Nov. 15, 2018 (EIRNS)—NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine declared that cooperation between Russia and the U.S. in space is better than ever despite “terrestrial disputes.” “Sometimes terrestrially Russia and the United States don’t get along so well,” Bridenstine said in an address at the Canadian Aerospace Summit on Nov. 14, reported Sputnik International.

“We have all kinds of terrestrial disputes, but when it comes to space exploration, when it comes to discovery, when it comes to science and the development of space, the relationship between Roscosmos and NASA is as strong as it has ever been.”

Bridenstine said NASA wants to keep that relationship with Roscosmos strong.

On Dec. 3, NASA said it plans to launch in collaboration with Roscosmos a new mission to the International Space Station on the Russian Soyuz rocket, Bridenstine reported. International partnerships are very important in fulfilling space missions such as the one to the ISS, he said.
