The US has offered Russia to go into space in the American space suits
The U.S. offered the Russian side to use their spacesuits instead of “Eagles” to work in open space. It is reported by RIA “Novosti” citing a source in the space industry.
As noted, in the fall of 2017 countries signed an agreement foreseeing the creation of a lunar station Lunar Orbital Platform — Gateway. The Russian side can create an airlock for the crew in open space.
“We are talking about what the EVAs from the Russian gateway proposed to conduct in the U.S. spacesuits,” said the source.
According to him, the United States insists on the manufacture of the airlock in accordance with American standards, which implies the use of new American spacesuits. According to the position of the American side, Russia is not involved in the creation of a lunar space suits, and keep at the station two different kits is not rational. Currently on the ISS using universal airlocks.
Previously Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence said that the U.S. will seek military dominance in space, including over Russia and China.
