    I've just discovered a Russian news website: "Sputnik International". Here is their take on news that is topical to most readers of this sub-forum (something has happened to Safari on my new iMac, and I can't cut & paste websites today. Strange):

    US Space Command Warns Not to Phase Out Russian Rocket Engine Too Quickly / Sputnik International

    in which they report Commander of USAF Space Command General Hyten as testifying to the Armed Service Committee yesterday, Fri 26 Jun, that he supports DoD request that ULA be allowed to continue to purchase the RD-180. SpaceX gets one line - the last of the article.

    I'd not seen this testimony report in any other news source; at the very least, I find it interesting to learn the Russian view of what is newsworthy.
