The Russian cosmonaut flew into space in an American capsule.  This is a historical moment

6 p.m. Poland time from the Space Center. John F. Kennedy in Florida, the Falcon-9 rocket took off with the Dragon Endurance capsule, the crew of Crew-5 consists of Americans – Nicole Mann and Josh Cassada of NASA, the Japanese Koichi Wakata of JAXA and Russian Anna Kikina from Roscosmos.

With this squad, the astronauts will dock at the port in the Harmony unit 29 hours after launch, it began its multi-month mission. This is a great event in the world of space industry. For the first time in history, a Russian cosmonaut was aboard an American capsule.

Russian space agency It gave the green light for astronauts to make regular trips to the International Space Station on board Elon Mask capsules In October last year, that is, before the Russian aggression against Ukraine. If this decision was made now, there would be no chance of carrying out such an undertaking.

Despite the fact that NASA organized an activity among astronauts, which was to show that there are no boundaries in space and that representatives of the countries of the world live there in harmony and friendship with each other, many fans of the space industry strongly criticized such ideas because of their of war in ukraine The aggressive behavior of the Kremlin.

Interestingly, last year, Dmitriy RogozinThe head of Roscosmos announced that the trip would not end with one. Russia plans three missions, the current Crew-5, Crew-6 and Crew-7. The latter is scheduled to take place in the first quarter of 2023. At that time, the Russian cosmonaut, Andrei Fedyaev, will be on board the American capsule.

Despite the huge Tensions on the US-Russian lineEverything indicates that these plans, although very controversial, will be implemented. On the subject of space, we must not forget that in recent days the Kremlin has slightly softened its tone regarding its previous plans to abandon the International Space Station.

Roscosmos officially admitted that it was a mistake to announce such a quick departure date for the International Space Station. Experts believe there is a trick in their decision. Well, they have no other choice. By 2024, they will not have time to build a new space house, and the idea of ​​​​help from China is unlikely to exist anymore, because Beijing does not support Russian aggression against Ukraine and has moved away from it at a great distance, although Putin was sure that something that will support it.

Either way, the Russians will remain in the cosmic home, and they will travel to it in American capsules. This is a very embarrassing situation for them, which indicates that not only in relation to the army, this “strength” has turned Giant on clay legsbut also on the topic of space exploration.
