NASA will pay Roscosmos $ 90 million for the delivery of an astronaut to the ISS

Despite the successful launch of the SpaceX Crew Dragon manned spacecraft as part of the Demo-2 (DM-2) mission, the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) intends to continue to cooperate with Roskosmos in sending astronauts to the ISS.

According to Forbes, NASA plans to pay the Russian space agency to send one of its astronauts aboard the Soyuz spacecraft to the ISS, and the Russian cosmonauts are likely
to go into space from the Florida cosmodrome next year.

NASA announced last week that it will send astronaut Kate Rubins to the ISS for a six-month mission as a flight engineer and crew member for Expedition 63/64.

Rubins will be sent to the ISS along with cosmonauts Sergei Ryzhikov and Sergei Kud-Sverchkov on the Soyuz MS-17 spacecraft, which is expected to be launched from the
Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on October 14, 2020. For this, NASA will pay Roscosmos $ 90 million ($ 90,252,905.69) — exactly as much as the space in Soyuz for a US astronaut cost before the successful SpaceX Crew Dragon flight.
