Following Russia’s threat to pull out of the ISS program in 2020, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden told reporters at Berlin’s annual airshow that the ISS could continue to function. Bolden said, “There is no single partner that can terminate the international space station.” Bolden also added that despite the tensions on Earth, the relationship between the U.S. and Russian space programs has not changed “one iota.” As for whether or not NASA could work with China in the future, Bolden said, “There is nothing that I see in the tea leaves that says our relationship is going to change.” (Image Credit: NASA)
