US can not do without Russia in space


America does not stand up without Russian engines. The US military has asked Congress for an opportunity to use Russian engines RD-180 up to the 2022. Prior to that, in Washington, it was decided that the device will be replaced by American counterpart. However, the head of the US Air Force Space Command, John Hiten said that the development created to replace the Russian engine, is far from the final result. But Mitchell, a retired general of the US Air Force said a year ago that the losses from the ban of RD will cost of 5 billion US. Dollars. 


How the political relations between the two countries are projected onto space?


Vladimir Dvorkin, Chief Researcher, Center for International Security IMEMO: "ISS continues to be operated together, astronauts from the United States and cosmonauts are there, and they have excellent relations. So, first, I do not see, in this any special problem. And, secondly, it continues in the field of peaceful use of space cooperation with Ukraine. We launch satellites using Russian-Ukrainian rocket "Dnepr". In addition, the launches will be carried out purely by Ukrainian rocket "Zenit" from our site. We have very close ties with Americans too, in terms of peaceful space. Therefore, there is no question of refuse."
