Russia throws doubt on joint lunar space station with U.S

Moscow may abandon a project to build a space station in lunar orbit in partnership with U.S. space agency NASA because it does not want a "second fiddle role," a Russian official said on Saturday.

Russia agreed last year to work with the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) on plans for the moon-orbiting Deep Space Gateway, which will serve as a staging post for future missions.

But the head of Russian space agency Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, said Russia might exit the joint program and instead propose its own lunar orbit space station project.

"The Russian Federation cannot afford to play the second fiddle role in it," he was quoted as saying by the RIA news agency, without much further elaboration.

Jeff Bezos explains why Blue Origin is 'the most important work I'm doing'

•Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said his company Blue Origin is trying to build low-cost infrastructure that can reduce the expenses of space travel.

•There are plenty of energy and resources in the solar system for future generations, he explained, but most of that would be inaccessible unless the cost of space travel can be reduced.

•Lowering the cost can help the next generation become space entrepreneurs, Bezos said at a gala organized by the Partnership for Public Service in Washington D.C on Tuesday.

SpaceX and CEO Elon Musk announced the first passenger it would fly around the moon, Yusaku Maezawa, who the company described as a “fashion innovator and globally recognized art curator.”

According to USA Today, they will be “the 25th person to swing around the backside of the moon and the first since America’s Apollo missions ended in 1972.”

Mid-Air Rocket Failure Forces Emergency Landing For US, Russia Space Crew

A Russian Soyuz booster rocket has failed in mid-air less than two minutes after take-off on Thursday, forcing the crew to make an emergency landing with the help of NASA and technicians on the ground.

Russian cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin and NASA astronaut Nick Hague were en route to the International Space Station in the Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft; however the booster suffered engine failure based on an apparent malfunction a mere 119 seconds after liftoff, causing them to have to immediately abort the mission.
