The only problem with this is the months it will take actively getting the smell of turnip puree and pirozhki sweat-farts out of the space station.

In other news, the next Progress spacecraft seems to have had "blackjack, and hookers" added to the manifest recently.

"Either we work together, in which case the sanctions are lifted immediately, or we will not work together and we will deploy our own station," Rogozin added.

Wow, they should try adding a few solar panels to that there space station.

Seriously, I didn't realize the goddamn thing had that many of them.

Americans: Fine! Good riddance. Don't let the hatch hit you in the ass on the way out!

/csb For my birthday, a buddy got me the Lego ISS.  Don't know why but I'm glad he did because that thing was fun as fark to sit down with bag and a bottle and put together.  That said, there are so many farking little Lego pieces into those sides with the panels on them.  Not easy take balls high and working through a bottle of vodak.  Lot of fun, though.  Bonus, my idiot friend that was putting it together with me dropped one of the panel pieces into the damn bong, so we had to fish that out.  Smells great!

We can't afford to maintain our space program. We have geopolitical reasons for getting out!

Well when the Polish were a part of the program, they brought up a diesel generator. But then the Russians kept drinking all the potato vodka that was being used to fuel it so they had to go with solar power.

Threatens?  I thought they already planned to leave ISS and join China to make a new one.  maybe even one around the moon

Presumably Russia can no longer afford it and is looking for a face-saving way to withdraw.  They're an undeveloped shiathole (with nukes), because Russians keep allowing brutal greedy thugs to rule them.

Boeing will get it right.....eventually.
If they can fix their corporate-cost-cutting-hubris after the 737 Max 8 debacle, I am sure Starliner will be viable.

This pretty much sums it up. It was charity of sorts that they were included in the first place, more as a means of them being able to maintain a space program. Post Challenger disaster they were used to bring personal to the station, but SpaceX and soon Blue Origin made that moot. In the end, nothing of value will be lost.

Their little hissy fit diplomacy is getting tiresome..Take your farking ball and go home..GO..
The only reason Russia has anything going at all is because Europe needs their damn dinosaur gas
to stay warm in the winter...Oil and Gas are about all they have economically..Well they do have
their dash-cam video income, but that's at least 3rd or 4th on the production list..

Also the Dragon Capsule is crew certified now, but mostly we need to bring back the MOOSE concept and make it real.

(Insert getting a kick meme here)

If the Russians leave, the USA ends. The propulsion capability to maintain orbital altitude, dodge space debris and to desaturate the U.S. CMG are performed by the Russian Service Module or by the Russian Progress Resupply vehicles. The U.S. has not had any independent ISS propulsion capability since the retirement of the Shuttle Orbiter.I

There was work on a U.S. Propulsion module back when the AM was delayed by the Russians but the effort was eventually scrapped. Maybe Musk can convert a Dragon into a propulsion vehicle, it probably not by 2025.

Very much a small threat. The ISS will require a bunch of very expensive replacement parts starting in 2028. NASA doesn't want to do it and seem intent on handing it over to Axiom as a practice station while Axiom builds theirs. Nobody else is stepping up to the plate to fund replacement segments so even if Roscosmos bails out in 2025 the only real effect is to speed up plans to hand it over.

Some of those are radiators for rejecting excess heat. You might think that with space being so cold, heating would be the problem. But vacuum insulates really well, so you have to radiate away heat.

As a Kerbal Space Program player I can confirm this is correct.

Don't forget about their one aircraft carrier. Now that I think about it it's even more embarrassing that they are capable of causing us so much heartburn.

Well other than the public spending we use to invest in spacecraft and innovation, but neither here nor there where Russia is concerned.
