To Russia With Love

James Oberg takes the opportunity, on the 30th anniversary of the Apollo-Soyuz space linkup (July 17, 1975) and the 10th anniversary of the first shuttle-Mir docking (1995), to revise some "revisionist history" about international cooperation in space, in particular the US-Russian partnership.

(Speaking of Cold War history, July 17th also marked the
60th anniversary of the first atomic explosion.) (link courtesy of Rand Simberg)

By the way, last week Russia announced approval of a
10-year space program budget of approximately $10.5 billion (which is of course less than NASA's annual budget.)
