Ukraine, US want to design space rocket

Ukraine and the United States discussed the design of a joint launch rocket without participation of the Russian Federation.

Head of the State Space Agency of Ukraine Lubomyr Sabadosh said this during his visit to the United States, Voice of America reports.

According to him, the talks with the representatives of the American business allow to say that Ukraine and the US can work together to design a launch carrier, which will take people to the space station.

"There is an example of that, participation of the Ukrainian companies in design of the Antares launch rocket, which will deliver the necessary cargos to the space station, and then, perhaps, will delivery the crew," Sabadosh said.

In addition, the rocket could be designed without cooperation with Russia.
