Today, NASA announced that eight countries — including the United States — have signed an international agreement known as the Artemis Accords, forming what NASA calls a broad and diverse coalition of nations committed to standardized lunar exploration.


NASA’s biggest partner, Russia, is not on the list

Quote:
NASA announced its intention to create the Artemis Accords back in May, after working with the US State Department and the National Space Council to come up with a draft set of rules for exploring the Moon. The document’s name refers to NASA’s Artemis program, an ambitious initiative that aims to send the first woman and the next man to the Moon. NASA hopes to partner with multiple countries for the program, and the agency created the Artemis Accords to ensure that other nations could agree on best practices for sending robots and people to the lunar surface.

We're going to the moon, not because it's easy
How long before Trump pulls out from this international treaty like the half dozen others he already did?

the russians are reportedly wasting bricks about the rise of space-x ... if nasa no longer needs soyuz to get humans into space, and loses interest in cooperating with the russians in space overall, then russia's space program will basically collapse

well the whole reason nasa partnered with the russians in the first place was to prevent its experts from going to work for countries like iran and north korea

but maybe given their current missile programs that's not really relevant anymore
