NASA Delivers Brand New Astronaut to Orbit in Russian Soyuz Rocket

The first components could launch as early as 2022 aboard NASA's powerful under-construction rocket, called the Space Launch System (SLS), and the Orion deep space capsule. Some 65% of Americans believe that NASA's role in space exploration is essential, with 33% saying that private companies will ensure that enough progress is made in space exploration without NASA's involvement.

In an interview with the Washington Post published Tuesday, Bridenstine says he is in talks with worldwide companies about commercial management of the space station.

"I've talked to many large corporations that are interested in getting involved in that through a consortium, if you will".

"The composition of the teams will be worldwide", Prokopyev said Tuesday.

"We have forced the conversation", he said.

Many Americans are confident private space companies will be profitable, but are more skeptical they will keep space clean. The crew is scheduled to work on some of the roughly 250 experiments and studies underway at the station during their planned five month stay.

Macron and Trudeau vow to confront Trump on tariffs
And tariffs are simply one more tool in the president's toolbox when it comes to repairing it. The G7 summit was supposed to be Trudeau's moment for Canada to shine on the world stage.

Trump making first official visit to Canada as President tomorrow
In response, Trump quipped to Trudeau, " Didn't you guys burn down the White House? " referring to the War of 1812 . They're looking at us at constant state of disbelief that we put this moron in the White House.

"Really what we're looking at is all of the entire commercial situation: The needs of both the station and the market", Boeing's ISS spokesman, Steven Siceloff, told CNBC.

As the Inquisitr reported at the time, following his company's monumental success, Musk told reporters that he hopes the Falcon Heavy launch will inspire an global space race. Gerst is the only astronaut of the mission that had participated in a space mission in 2014. "We need commercial to step up in ways that we haven't seen before", he said.

The reason the Trump administration wants to privatize the International Space Station is to save money.

According to the NASA budget request for the 2019 fiscal year, all federal government support of the International Space Station is to end in 2025.

Paul Martin, NASA's inspector general, says that privatizing won't save that much money because NASA would still send astronauts and cargo to it, which can be expensive.

The annual United States investment in the space lab ranges from $3 billion to $4 billion.
