John Batchelor and I welcomed back Anatoli Zak to discus the possibility of Russian joining in with the Lunar Gateway. While Russia has said the Gateway was too U.S. centric and any agreements need to be based on the ISS agreement, there is thought that Russia might make an effort get back in on the Gateway if their budget allows it. Anatoli explained the Russian situation to us, the status of the Russian-China space relationship and the role of he Russian Orel crewed spaceship. Don't miss all of what Anatoli talked about during this 11 minute Hotel Mars segment.
