US is in a space race with China – NASA

The head of the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration Bill Nelson, speaking at the 36th space symposium in Colorado Springs, was skeptical about the prospects for cooperation with China in the space field

“Unfortunately, the United States and China are in a space race. But I would like China to be our partner, as is the case with Russia,” he admitted.

Nelson added that the obstacle is that China is a closed country, and transparency is necessary for cooperation in the space sector. At the same time, the head of NASA said that he was pleased with the interaction with Russia and looked forward to its continuation.
