We can't say we didn't see this coming. Things have been, shall we say, tense between the two countries since Russia got involved in the Ukrainian mess (and subsequently annexed Crimea.) All this while it seemed like NASA had managed to stay above the political fray and we crossed our fingers that the two space programs wouldn't get caught in a Romeo and Juliet situation due to the increasingly cold relations between their respective parent countries. That ended on Wednesday when Associate Administrator Michael O'Brien sent out a memo announcing they were severing all contact between NASA and Roscosmos, indefinitely.
