Russia targets space station project.

Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said Moscow would reject a U.S. request to prolong the orbiting station’s use beyond 2020.

Washington wants to keep the $100 billion, 15 nation space station project in use until at least 2024, four years beyond the previous target.

Senator Nelson gives a somewhat informative speech on the floor of the Senate.  Keep in mind many of the points are taken from the Democratic Party narrative, and do support the Obama Polity.   Also note that Senator Nelson takes funds from Elon Musk’s SpaceX Pac.

On May 14, 2014, U.S. Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) addressed the Senate floor about the state of U.S.-Russian space relations after Russian intervention in Ukraine and the U.S. imposition of sanctions.
