NASA is ready to increase the number of joint space experiments with Russia

BAIKONUR, September 26. /ITAR-TASS/. The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration agency NASA is ready to increase the number of joint space experiments with Russia, head of Russia’s National Space Agency Roskosmos, Oleg Ostapenko, told ITAR-TASS on Friday.

“Today our American colleagues have offered to widen cooperation regarding the joint experiments in space”, he said, adding that most of the experiments on the International Space Station /ISS/ during the forthcoming year will be conducted with close participation of Russian and American space crews.

Early April, 2014 NASA announced suspending space cooperation with Russia, except for ISS projects, due to the political crisis in Ukraine; however, by the end of the month NASA’s head personally assured his Russian counterpart that no space projects would be suspended and Russia-US space ties remain strong enough.
