From Russia With Love

Russia's Federal Space Agency chief Anatoly Perminov embraced the newly amended Iran Nonproliferation Act (INA) of 2000, calling it a "breakthrough in U.S.-Russian space cooperation." (AP via Space.com)

Here's the new law, which I meant to link last week when Pres. Bush signed it:
S. 1713, the "Iran Nonproliferation Amendments Act of 2005," which of course amends the Iran Nonproliferation Act of 2000 to authorize NASA to buy Russian rocket rides and services for the International Space Station. Nostrovia! Next time Commander Bill McArthur watches a Harry Potter movie it could be from the comfort of earth. (Not necessarily as exciting...)

(For now, a personal greeting to Mr. Perminov from SLP:

Мы любим Россию ;-)
