NASA called successful cooperation with Russia on the ISS program

29
The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has successfully collaborated with Russia on the ISS program, reports TASS a statement by the director of the NASA commercial flight development program, Philip Macalister.




Russia was a very good partner for the USA in implementing the ISS program. However, the United States sees access to space as a matter of strategic importance. We intend to ensure that we are able to rely on the achievements of the American space industry to accomplish these tasks.
McAllister said in an interview with the French La Gazette de l'Eco Economie.

He noted that “by ceasing the use of the American ship of reusable use, the US was already striving to ensure that the transition period (creation of carriers) was as short as possible.”

In a year or two, if everything goes successfully, we will regain the opportunity to send people into space thanks to our partners,
A NASA spokesman said, referring to US companies and cooperation with Western countries.

When asked if the space agency would resume the creation and use of its own launch vehicles at some point, McAllister answered:

This is highly unlikely. The ability to rely on private companies in this area is very beneficial for NASA. Due to competition, prices are falling, and all this allows NASA to concentrate on other goals, such as the Moon and Mars.


At the same time, he noted that “nothing prevents NASA from cooperating (in organizing flights to the Moon and Mars) with the companies Space X and Blue Origin”.

However, the goals of these firms differ from the tasks of NASA (...). I believe that in this area there will be a place for different operator companies. There is enough space in the solar system for everyone, and besides, we can help each other,
added McAllister.

    Since everything here is successful with them, so do them sanctions in this area. Or is money above all? So you then immediately offshore and drive them, they will not work for our country.

      So we will declare them a bike in the space sphere ... this is quite an argument against the background of their screams, saying that the astronaut touches, then becomes American ...

          Where money is involved, there are no extremes such as "black and white", but there are many shades.

            In this case, you can justify any act, misconduct, and anything else.

        Are you sure?
        Personally, I have the impression that the ground is being actively prepared for lowering the reputation of Roscosmos below the plinth .... I already don’t want to hear about satellite launches.
        When will they find?

        Lost Communication with Angolan Satellite Launched from Baikonur
        Interfax does not yet have official confirmation of this information from Roskosmos. It was previously reported that the Zenit-2SB launch vehicle launched from the launcher number 1 of the platform number 45 of the Baikonur cosmodrome with the first Angolan satellite Angosat.

        I really hope that everything will work out.

      Unfortunately, ours cannot do anything here — the international station — You cannot close access to the Americans .. You can of course shut them down to orbit, but only the station itself will suffer from it .. We, unfortunately, do nothing except the ISS. Look at the USA how many interplanetary stations are currently in space, how many orbiting telescopes for the study of far space. To our regret, they are now moving Cosmonoftics ..

    Space is a very complicated matter, it is really necessary to cooperate here, in spite of politics, neither we nor they will pull alone, and the more countries join forces, the sooner the result of space exploration will be.

        But it will be more difficult, for example, they still need RD-180 engines, and manned launches, we also need an electronic base in the first place, just as soon some Chinese elements will come in handy for both.

    Only stupid people from our leadership were able to do this:
    Share space technology and be proud of it !!!
    Without our technologies, there was no ISS, as there would have been no long-term flights of space stations with crew rotation on an ongoing basis.
    Mirror the situation, the United States would have possessed such technologies, but we would not be allowed to come near the ISS! Even for the money! A maximum of tourists;)

    Our government does not value anything!
    Recklessly and free of charge, shares technologies and instead stands with an outstretched hand, hoping for reciprocity from the USA and Europe. Fools!
    There is no single goal of mankind in space; there is normal competition in space exploration! And which country will find and master more than that, it will flourish. And to hope for reciprocity, this is ... as according to Lavrov ... we are worried and disappointed!
    Naive fools who do not support agreements with legal instruments!

    And there was such an American SkyLab station. There were only three crews. Moreover, in terms of duration, we surpassed the third crew either on Salute-3, or on Salute-4. The Americans have relied on shuttle-type systems; we are on orbital stations. And the Americans have had technologies for creating large facilities. Most of the modules at the station are American. All external fittings (trusses, SB panels, etc.) are also theirs.
    The only thing they achieve is not to pay for everything themselves. There is an order of magnitude more scientific equipment in their segment than ours. So with or without us, they would have had annual flights ...

    Previously reported that the Zenit-2SB launch vehicle

    Actually, not Zenit-2SБ, but Zenit-3F. This was the fourth launch of this launch vehicle modification. By the way, the Zenit-2SB modification does not exist at all. There was a modification of Zenit-2SLБ (Zenit-2M) and it flew only once in 2006

    Oh, "Peace" is a pity! And you also need to remember that the refusal to transfer it to another orbit was expressed by our Great and Terrible. That's where the high-flying policy is.

    The answer in the style of “who is better at throwing poop in the sandbox” is all that your powerful mind could invent for solving strategic international problems?
    Money here is just not above all. Russia clearly shows who is worth what. Who, for the sake of the political situation, is ready to throw shit with shovels at neighbors, and who supports international cooperation in the scientific field and in the development of advanced lines for Mankind.
    Polish your copper forehead lightly so that the gleams of bright thoughts slip through.

    Skylab - the first and last - 3 expeditions without restocking, in about 29-54-89 days. Well, well ... such a long such full-fledged operation. All reserves at the station were withdrawn with it. The atmosphere at the station is artificial (nitrogen-oxygen), but at our stations the air is close to Earth in composition.
    Skylab is just a barrel - a rocket stage, not an independent station, there was no functioning protective thermal envelope, there were no independent orientation engines, ... and much more.
    Created from what was. They didn’t bring it to their minds and “laughed” with flooding, bombed the territory of Australia.
    For spacesuits, let's;))) soft, or hard or semi-rigid, which are accepted as the standard for zlotot and who made them and does them: the USSR and Russia!
    Docking nodes? ;)))))
    The failure of long-term orbital stations in the United States and Europe is utter at the turn of the 80s and 90s!
    Yes, to reach our 90s level in DOS Stations, the West needed hundreds of billions.
    They did not have a full technology cycle !!!
    And in fact they could not !!!
    Took us for free!
