After Roscosmos and NASA signed an agreement on operational and financial support of the ISS until 2024, and relations between Russia and the United States have become more than a cold, joint space projects between the two countries have become very questionable. However, representatives of the Russian Federal Space Agency reported on a new joint project with the Space
US agency. In addition, the project is expected to make a discovery that it could take part any country wishes to join the ISS.
This statement by the Russian Federal Space Agency Igor Komarov was made during a joint press conference with Charles Bolden, head of NASA, at Baikonur in Kazakhstan.
“We have agreed that the group of countries participating in the ISS project will work on future project of a new space station – continued Komarov. – 2024 ISS will work, and in the future period of its existence will depend on the realization of our joint projects “.
Recall to Pravda.Ru recently wrote about that Roskosmos not count on continued cooperation with NASA, however, as we have seen, pessimistic forecasts were not justified and the decision to stop work on the ISS in 2020 also declined. You can also recall the concepts developed by the Russian manned space flight for the period up to 2030 and beyond, according to which the intended use of the ISS until 2024, and then planned the creation of the Russian space base on the basis separated from the ISS modules.
During the press conference, the head of NASA also talked about the good prospects of cooperation with the Russian Space Agency, in particular on the preparation of future missions to Mars. But how will develop further joint cooperation between the two countries on this issue, talk a little bit early. The results will be announced only after careful consideration of all the outcome of negotiations between the Russian Space Agency and NASA.
And while orbiting the Earth continues to operate the Russian-American crew. As reported PRAVDA.Ru, last Friday, he was taken to the International Space Station Russian manned spacecraft “Soyuz TMA-16M”.
