When trouble knocks on your door, don’t let it in.Â So NASA says no thanks to Russia’s offer to pool resources to do a joint moon exploration project.Â NASA is reportedly taking this project on without international partners.Â Â Russia’s space agency head Anatoly Perminov said . . .
We were ready to cooperate but for unknown reasons, the United States have said they will undertake this programme themselves.
Here’s an ‘unknown reason’ for ya.Â Â Putin’s latest clamp on freedomÂ where he says that “the United States was to be portrayed as an enemy.”Â His words. Â That’s the message radio broadcasters got after being taken over by the State, among other things.Â I in no way know that Putin’s ‘enemy’ statementÂ had anything to do with NASA’s response.Â Â Â IMHO, I couldn’t throwÂ him far enough, even on the moon’s surface, to trust him.Â Putin’s enemy fixation sort of blows the whole trust thing out the window for me.
