Moscow: “With the sanctions, the Space Station is at risk of closure”

This was stated by Dmitry Rogozin, the head of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, asking for its revocation

Russia says sanctions could shut down the International Space Station (ISS). This was stated by Dmitry Rogozin, the head of the Russian space agency Roscosmos asking for it revocation. According to Rogozin, the operation of Russian spacecraft supplying the ISS will be disrupted by sanctions, affecting the segment Russian station serving, among other things, a to correct the orbit of the orbital structure. Consequently it could cause us, even, the ditching or landing of the ISS.

Russia’s help for the ISS orbit


The segment Russian ensures that the station’s orbit is correct (on average 11 times a year), also to avoid debris space, Rogozin said. By publishing a map of where the ISS could possibly fall, he pointed out that it is unlikely to happen to us in Russia. Bad populations other countries, especially those led by warmongers, should think about price sanctions against Roscosmos, he continued, defining crazy people the countries that have imposed the sanctions.

On March 1st, the NASA he said he was trying to find one solution to keep the ISS in orbit without Russia’s help. Crews and supplies come transported in the Russian side from the Soyuz spacecraft. But Rogozin claimed that the launcher used for the take-off subjected to sanctions USA from 2021 and those of the EU and Canada from 2022. Roscosmos therefore claimed to have launched an appeal to NASA, the Canadian Space Agency and the European Space Agency, asking for the revocation illegal sanctions against our companies.

Guidoni: At the moment no effect


On the future of the International Space Station (ISS) on risk there but at the moment there aren’t effects. It’s all about skirmishes minutes and we hope it does not go further. She tells it to LaPresse astronaut Umberto Guidoni after the statements by Dmitry Rogozin. Guidoni explains that the life the station was supposed to end in 2025 but there was talk of extending it instead at this point likely that does not happen to us. At the same time, keep an eye on the end of the month when the come back in ashore from the station of two Moscow astronauts and one American via a Russian Soyuz capsule.

The skirmishes in orbit between Rogozin and NASA

Space is one of the last remaining sectors in which Russia and the West continue – for now – to cooperate. The Russian Rogozin knows this, and last month he had stirred the bugbear of the station’s fall to Earth by explaining that the structure used for the take-off affected by the American sanctions from 2021, and from the European and Canadian ones from 2022. Roscosmos would have asked the three respective space agencies to mobilize for the removal of sanctions, but to no avail.

The skirmish between the leader of Roscosmos and the other partners of the international space station resumed, then, days ago. Garrett Reisman, a NASA astronaut who was a longtime crew member of the ISS, criticized Rogozin on Twitter: the president of Roscosmos had shown a video in which, from a Soyuz rocket, a Russian astronaut had removed the flags of the United Kingdom and the United States. Another NASA astronaut, Scott Kelly, had tweeted that without international cooperation, Roscosmos wouldn’t even exist, and Rogozin would work at McDonald’s. Rogozin blocked him, calling him a c … one.
