Default SpaceX Will Carry Russian Cosmonaut on Next Mission

NASA Invites Media to Next SpaceX Commercial Crew Space Station Launch
The Crew-5 launch will carry two NASA astronauts Mission Commander Nicole Mann and Pilot Josh Cassada, along with JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) astronaut Koichi Wakata and Roscosmos cosmonaut Anna Kikina, who will serve as mission specialists.
So it appears the cooperation in space is not suffering much from the war in the Ukraine.
All these ideas…are chained to the existence of men, to who[m]…they owe their existence. Precisely in this case the preservation of these definite races and men is the precondition for the existence of these ideas. --Adolf Hitler

Well, I guess the elongated muskrat can afford it since he has already proven his pro-Jewkrainian credentials.

Ukraine’s Zelensky says Elon Musk will send more Starlink systems

The Ukrainian president said he was grateful to the world’s richest man for supporting his country with “words and deeds”

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he spoke to Elon Musk via video conference on Saturday, with the Tesla and SpaceX CEO promising to send more Starlink systems to the country amid the Russian invasion.

“I’m grateful to him for supporting Ukraine with words and deeds,” Zelensky tweeted.

According to the president, next week the country will receive more systems to connect to the Starlink satellite internet constellation, operated by SpaceX.

Starlink became active in Ukraine last week after Vice Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov requested it in an open letter to Musk. The stations were needed “to address sane Russians to stand,” Fedorov said.
In the clip, Zelensky invited Musk to come to Ukraine, saying: “after the war you’re very welcome.” The entrepreneur responded that the idea “sounds good.”

How Elon Musk’s satellite internet is coming to Ukraine’s defense


(Tribune News Service) — In a move as rogue-ishly provocative as his moonshot, Elon Musk is inserting himself into the drama of international conflict by bolstering Ukraine’s internet connection to the outside world.

Last Wednesday, his trucks delivered a second shipment of satellite-based Starlink internet terminals to a battered Ukraine, responding to a plea from the nation’s vice prime minister. His initial shipment arrived on Feb. 28, only four days after Russian forces launched an assault on the nation.

His system beams data from space — and so, unlike land-based networks, it is less vulnerable to attack or authoritarian control. Those aspects seem to be angering Russian officials.

“This is the West that we should never trust,” responded Dmitry Rogozin, director-general of Russia’s space agency, on a state television channel translated by Katya Pavlushchenko on Twitter. “When Russia implements its highest national interests on the territory of Ukraine, Elon Musk appears with his Starlink which was previously declared as purely civilian.”

There are other complications too. Using Starlink is potentially dangerous because the Russian military could detect and identify citizens by their satellite communications, warned John Scott-Railton, a senior researcher at Toronto’s The Citizen Lab. “Users’ uplink transmissions become beacons for airstrikes,” he tweeted.
