MOSCOW, December 19 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) and Nasa have failed to reach an agreement on astronauts’ launch to the International Space Station (ISS) by Russian transport manned spacecraft after 2016, Roscosmos head Oleg Ostapenko told reporters at the Federation Council, the upper house of Russian parliament, on Thursday.
“The issue was placed on the agenda,” he said. “We reached agreement on meeting in 2014 for negotiations. There is no final decision yet.”
As some media reported earlier, Roscosmos and Nasa have come to preliminary understanding on the item.
