We welcomed to Hotel Mars Dr. John Logsdon to help us understand recent statements made by Dmitry Rogozin of Roskosmos regarding the Russian future for the ISS past 2020, new space relationships the Russians are building with other nations, and the issue of Russia shutting down 11 US GPS correctional sites within Russia. Dr. Logsdon spoke about out overall space program, policy and goals. We also asked if the US was dependent on Russia with out space program and we are not though we are dependent with them regarding the ISS. We also talked about targeted sanctions against Russian individuals rather than the nation and what happens when things calm down.
