US Seeks ‘Balanced’ Partnership in Space Programs With Russia – NASA Administrator

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The United States wants to maintain its space partnership with Russia, but will seek a “balanced” relationship, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said on Tuesday.

Bridenstine stressed the importance of maintaining a good partnership between NASA and Roskosmos, the Russian space agency.

However, the United States must not let itself fall again into a condition of dependency on Moscow, he added.

Last week, a Falcon 9 rocket built and operated by the Space X company working in partnership with NASA carried US astronauts to the International Space Station. It was the first successful manned launch carried out on a US-built rocket since the last Space Shuttle was taken out of service in 2011.
