This is a fairly big thing and I can't help but feel it is largely going unreported.

Russia/US (NASA) have always, even during the retro Cold War, have always had some level of cooperation. To now speak of threatening to end that speaks volume of the disaster that is Barrack Obama's foreign policy.

It has been said that only Nixon could go to China. Now it will be Putin.
