The Remarkable International Success Of The ISS

Keith's note: Stop for a moment and look at the expanding disarray in terms of America's relations with other nations - one that is exacerbated by a global pandemic. Where is the one place where a multi-national program has operated - smoothly - as a real partnership - with no real problems between the partners? Answer: the International Space Station. This is a consummate example - for all involved - as to the value of soft power. There actually are things more important than transient food fights back on Earth. This aspect of the ISS is often lost and rarely played up to the extent it warrants. Living in space can teach us how to live on Earth. Oh yes: Let's try and keep the ISS success story in the forefront as we start to make noises about war in space and claiming things out there for personal use.
