The Russian director said – ISS on India-China
Dmitry Rogozin tweeted that President Joe Biden announced the new sanctions on Thursday. In this, the Russian space department is the target of their space travel. He said the orbit and location of the space station were controlled by Russian space engines. Rogosin asked who would keep the International Space Station from coming out of orbit and being checked if you stopped cooperating. It falls in the US or Europe. India and China are likely to fall into this structure weighing 500 tons. Do you want to threaten these countries with such possibilities? He made it clear that the space station will not fly over Russia, so you have all the dangers. Are you ready for this?
NASA clarified – Cooperation with Russia will not diminish
A NASA spokesman for the U.S. sanctions said Russia would continue to assist in the safe operation of the International Space Station. NASA will continue to work with all of its international partners, including the Russian space agency Roscosmos. The spokesman added that the new sanctions would not affect domestic space cooperation between the United States and Russia. There is no plan to change the cooperation between the two countries in orbital and ground station operations. The new export operations will only apply to military and ambitious missions.
Many countries jointly operate the space station
The International Space Station is operated jointly by the United States, Russia, Japan, Canada and the European Space Agency. It is also the most expensive product ever made on earth. The estimated cost of the International Space Station is $ 15 trillion. NASA alone spends $ 400 million annually on the maintenance of the space station. The laboratory and other facilities at the space station are state-of-the-art. Since November 2000 astronauts from various countries have been on the International Space Station at all times.
Orbits at an altitude of 410 km above the Earth
According to the US space agency, the space station orbits at a distance of about 410 kilometers from Earth. Work on the project began in 1989. Currently, ISS is the largest satellite ever built. The ISS includes NASA in the United States, the Russian Federal Space Agency (RKA), the Japan Space Agency (JAXA), the Canadian Space Agency in Canada (CSA) and the European European Space Agency (ESA).
