NASA Administrator Charles Bolden told Congress on Thursday that the ongoing dispute with Russia has not harmed Americans’ ability to get astronauts to the International Space Station. Bolden was attempting to reassure lawmakers who are concerned the U.S. space program could be disrupted after Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said U.S. “astronauts soon will need a trampoline to get to the space station.” Bolden said ties between the two countries’ space programs remain strong. Bolden also suggested that U.S. launches to the ISS could be accelerated with additional funds. (Image Credit: NASA)
