NASA and Roscosmos heads to meet next month

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine will meet his Russian counterpart in person next month. In a rare joint statement, NASA and Roscosmos confirmed earlier Russian statements that the two would meet at Baikonur during the launch of a Soyuz spacecraft to the International Space Station "on or around" October 10. The statement also addressed the Russian investigation into a hole in a Soyuz spacecraft docked to the station found two weeks ago, and said the agencies would refrain from making "any preliminary conclusions and providing any explanations" until a Roscosmos-led investigation is complete. That statement comes amid rumors, primarily in Russian media, about who might have caused the hole in the spacecraft.
