As you probably know NASA has retired its space shuttle. Now if American astronauts need to go to the International Space Station they have to hitch a ride with the Russians. I’m not upset about this but I do appreciate the irony. During the space race Russia was determined to beat the U.S. to the moon and because of this they tried some incredibly dangerous stunts. Countless cosmonauts were killed in failed attempts to reach orbit. They had a trial and error mentality. They even built a catapult. Yes, all of that was years ago, but you would thing the American government wouldn’t be so keen on trusting Russia with their astronauts after such a poor performance.
