Re: Russian/Georgia conflict affect ISS operations?

If Russia starts annexing countries on it's border then the damage to the space program ias quite frankly by far the least of our worries.

BUT - Russia needs the west and we need Russia, there is more to be had from trade than war and Russia realises that (hence the current peace process).

Even a limited conflict between western forces and Russia does not bear thinking about in terms of potential casualties, economic damage and international relations.

Just keep your fingers crossed this all blows over - I dont think either the USA or Russia wants another cold war.
