US to Continue Space Cooperation With Russia After Spacecraft Crashes

Washington DC (RIA Novosti) Nov 06, 2014

The United States plans to continue cooperation with Russia in the space industry amid US spacecraft crashes, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said on Monday.

“We have continued to see cooperation between the United States and Russia as it relates to the International Space Station (ISS),” Earnest said answering the question if the United States is going to reconsider NASA funding in light of strained relationship with Russia.

Earnest pointed out that an American astronaut was transported to the ISS aboard a Russian rocket a few weeks ago, which indicates “the ongoing cooperation that exists between the United States and Russia” in the space industry.

Earlier last week, the Antares spacecraft that was carrying cargo to the ISS crashed immediately after the launch in the US state of Virginia.
