Whew! That’s a relief.

Seriously, I never expected them to do anything, as the sanctions NASA has imposed, excluding ISS, are so minor that they mean nothing to Russia. The only people NASA really hopes will react to these sanctions are Congressmen and Senators when they realize how dependent we are on the Russians to get to space.

    We’re dependent on their rocket to get to real ISS and they’re depend on our money to keep the doors open. I doubt the “Tit for Tat” sanctions will hit there, But I think it would be a real good idea to get a manned space craft yesterday if not sooner. The best way to do that is give well funded, performance contracts to the private sector and get out of their way.
