Griffin Steps In It Again

NASA chief: U.S. may end flights with Russians, AP

"NASA's top official said today that the future of U.S participation in Russian space flights is in doubt due to a congressional measure that aims to punish Moscow for its cooperation with Iran."

Editor's note: Who is advising Griffin on this issue? The last time I checked Congress was looking forward to revising the INA to help NASA. Going to Russia and trying to scare the Russians by pinning all of this on Congress has had one effect: to annoy Congress. This is not the best way to get people to do NASA a favor.

NASA Seeks Clearance to Buy Russian Technology, Washington Post

"Yesterday, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Richard G. Lugar (R-Ind.) introduced a bill amending the law to allow both NASA and U.S. corporations to purchase Russian space equipment until 2012."
