YEKATERINBURG, November 21. /TASS/. Sanctions cause no problems so far for Russian scientists to receive space research data, an associate professor at a physics institute told TASS.
“If there are some sanctions in science, they will refer rather to technical issues. Planetary studies quickly become open for access, and Russian scientists have no problems to receive information. Though NASA specialists have postponed their visit to us, and we can only suppose with what it is connected,” said Viktor Grokhovsky, an associate professor at the physics and technology institute and a member of the committee for meteorites of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
Russian specialists for the present have free access to data of international research to use it in their study of fragments of the Chelyabinsk meteorite, which fell into Lake Chebarkul, the Chelyabinsk region, in February 2013.
“There were no problems to receive important scientific date in space research even in Soviet Union times. For example, in the 1970s, our laboratory received samples brought to Earth by the piloted American spacecraft Apollo,” Grokhovsky said.
Russian scientists see no problems to receive first scientific data from the Churyumov-Gerasimenko comet examined by the Philae probe of the European Space Agency.
Earlier, a deputy director of the Space Research Institute, doctor of physics and mathematics, Oleg Korablyov, told TASS that the first results of the research would be announced by the American Geophysical Union when it meets from December 15 to 19 in San Francisco, the United States.
