Posted: Sat, Jul 23, 2022, 9:50 AM ET (1350 GMT)
NASA and Roscosmos finalized a seat barter agreement that will allow the agencies to fly people on each others' spacecraft in September. NASA announced July 15 that the long-awaited agreement was signed, allowing Roscosmos cosmonaut Anna Kikina to be a part of the Crew-5 Crew Dragon mission launching in early September and NASA astronaut Frank Rubio to go on the Soyuz MS-22 mission later in September. NASA also said Roscosmos cosmonaut Andrei Fedyaev would go on Crew-6 and NASA astronaut Loral O'Hara on Soyuz MS-23 next spring. The deal coincided with but was not linked to the removal of Dmitry Rogozin as head of Roscosmos. Rogozin may be reassigned to another position in the Russian presidential administration.
