The head of Russia’s space program said today that NASA’s plans to send people back to the Moon are “too US-centric” for Russia to participate. He has been critical of the program in the past and now says that Russia would only be open to participating if the Moon plans were more focused on international cooperation.

“The most important thing here would be to base this program on the principles of international cooperation that we’ve all used” to fly the ISS, Dmitry Rogozin, the director-general of Roscosmos, said through a translator during a virtual press conference at the International Astronautical Congress. He added: “If we could get back to considering making these principles as the foundation of the program, then Roscosmos could also consider its participation.”

BEIJING, Sept. 15 (Xinhua) — As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage and the global economy undergoes severe setbacks, China is again calling for the strengthening of international sci-tech cooperation, an effective way to win an earlier victory over the global health crisis.
