“ editor, Keith Cowing isn’t surprised NASA isn’t saying too much at this point. “Why isn’t NASA talking right now? They probably don’t have cogent answers to give you other than, ‘Yeah, we’re scared and B, we don’t know what’s going to happen,'” Cowing explained. In a series of tweets, the head of the Russian space agency, Dmitry Rogozin said sanctions could lead to the destruction of the ISS, “If you block cooperation with us who will save the ISS from an unguided de-orbit to impact on the territory of the US or Europe,” he said. Rogozin also appeared to take aim at President Joe Biden, “I suggest that you not behave like an irresponsible gamer and disavow the ‘Alzheimer’s Sanctions.’ Friendly advice,” he said. Cowing said he’s never seen anything like the Russian leader’s response to the sanctions. “I saw the first tweet and it said Alzheimer’s, and I thought ‘Is that a typo? No, he said Alzheimer’s,'” Cowing recalled. “I cannot fathom anybody heading any space agency, American or otherwise, ever, ever talking about that about anybody about anything.”
