Ilan Musk, in a brief response to the head of the Russian space agency who implicitly threatened the crash of the International space Station, called SpaceX the savior of the station.

Russian space agency chief Dmitry Rogozin appears to have threatened the United States and Europe with the collapse of the International space station following US sanctions against Russia following the invasion of Ukraine that killed hundreds of people. Rogozin said Thursday that sanctions that interfere with Russia's work on the International space station could cause the 500-ton station to fall to the ground. "Who saves the International space station from an uncontrolled orbital exit and crash into the United States or Europe?" He wrote in his tweet.

answered. The billionaire CEO of Tesla and SpaceX had a simple response to the head of the Russian space agency and only tweeted his company logo. A user who asked for more details suggested that Ilan Musk meant SpaceX to save the space station, and he confirmed it by saying "yes."

Can SpaceX Save the station?

No doubt the world needs a little encouragement right now, but keep in mind that Mask had previously made promises such as rescuing a young man trapped in a cave in Thailand, but despite sending equipment, He failed miserably, so it's a little difficult to fully rely on what he said recently.

But he has taken more action these days. For example, it has enabled Starlink satellite Internet access for Ukraine and may have plans for an International space Station. He even responded to another promising tweet explaining how SpaceX could connect to the International space station in the absence of the Russian section.

" Pete Harding "(Pete Harding) A NASASpaceFlight reporter has published renderings showing that the Dragon SpaceX spacecraft can provide the necessary stability and control by connecting to the space station. He also considered the use of the optimized Northrop Gramman Signus spacecraft for this purpose. "The ISS looks like this without the Russian part being attached, and instead a dragon capsule can be attached to provide stability and control," Harding wrote. The Dragon spacecraft, which can carry and return up to seven passengers to Earth orbit, has been used many times to send and return astronauts to the space station, and has even successfully completed the historic inspiration mission "Inspiration 4". Although it is hoped that the International space Station's controlled end and retirement will be as planned without any problems and that Mask's courageous efforts will not be needed, knowing that somewhere, a Dragon spacecraft may be able to prevent it. from the fall of the International space Station, it is a little reassuring./p>
