NASA announced its desire to extend the cross-flight program with Russia
The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) would like to extend the cross-flight program with Russia, said U.S. International Space Station (ISS) Program Manager Joel Montalbano.
He responded to a question about the agency’s plans to extend the agreement, which so far runs until 2024. As specified by the representative of the Office, NASA considered the extension of the agreement as their goal.
In September, the head of manned space flight program of NASA Kathy Lueders said that the U.S. expects to continue to support the “Roscosmos” cross-flight program. According to her, the U.S. side appreciates the cooperation with Roscosmos.
Lueders pointed out the consistency of the two countries’ joint work, even despite the difficult geopolitical situation.
