International Space Station May Be Abandoned

“Astronauts may need to temporarily withdraw from the International Space Station before the end of this year if Russia is unable to resume manned flights of its Soyuz rocket after a failed cargo launch last week, according to the NASA official in charge of the outpost.”

 

This is really frustrating. It’s not like we’ve forgotten how to get to space or lack the technology to do it, we just aren’t in the business of sending things into space anymore. So we have to lean on Russia’s unreliable launch systems for the foreseeable future.
