Russia to quit International Space Station

No Comments

Russia says it will pull out of the International Space Station (ISS) after the country’s current commitment expires at the end of 2024, ending its decades-long partnership with NASA at the orbiting outpost and launching its own, new space station soon afterward.

Yury Borisov, the newly-appointed head of Russia’s space agency, Roscosmos, made the announcement on Tuesday, saying that he had already informed Russian President Vladimir Putin about leaving the ISS, a key symbol of post-Cold War cooperation with the United States.
