Russia Plans To Leave The ISS, Proposes US Astronauts To Use Trampoline

19

It seems conflicts on Earth send ripples that are felt even in outer space; the Russian Federal Space Agency has announced that it plans to leave the International Space Station (ISS) by 2024. In a statement, the Russian space agency has stated that it will continue with ISS until US funding for American  astronauts dries up in 2024. It would then have its own modules removed, and re-purposed to join a Russian-only station.

Last year, Russia had threatened to pull out of ISS by 2020 in response to sanctions that had been implemented by America.

“I propose the United States delivers its astronauts to the ISS with the help of a trampoline,” stated the Russian Deputy Prime Minister at the time. America depends on Russia to ferry its astronauts to and from the ISS due to NASA budget cuts.

Russia hopes to renew its own lunar program, beginning with unmanned crafts orbiting the moon and culminating in manned landings by 2030.

  1. This is wrong, Russia forget that in the most difficult moments THEY ARE THE ONE WHO LITERALLY SAVE UNITED-STATES. This takes away their usual outstanding glory over UnitedStates. Even Hollywood and Intelligent Encyclopedias recognize that.

  2. Pretty sure I heard somewhere that US is spending alot already not to dink around in the atmosphere but working on, oh idk… spacecrafts that go farther than the moon or orbit the planet, boring stuff I know…

  3. Half the world is starving who gives a fuck about how these two super powers jack each other off in space what a bunch of cock heads.

  4. I would like to follow you up,and be a firm supporter of your
    activities springing from all sort of human rights violations.
