The number of the International Space Station program participants may be enlarged by adding China and India, ISS flight engineer Fiodor Urchikhin said answering the question from the ISS Mail Box. The Mail Box is the project by Memorial Space Museum supported by Roscosmos PAO and Moscow’s Department of Culture.
“I am sure that partnership with China and India would be mutually beneficial in the program”, Urchikhin said, Interfax AVN informs.
“Chinese achievements in human space missions are well-known. A Chinese module in the ISS? It is not a fantasy, provided that all parties agree with is”, Yurchikhin believes.  “But I am against thoughtless involvement; interesting ideas, technologies shall be involved in the program”.
