The Focus: Episode 3
In this episode of The Focus we look at whether it is possible to conceive of Sino-American cooperation in space. During the high point of the Cold War, American and Soviet space programs did find a point at which they could cooperate. The iconic imagery of the Soyuz-Apollo mission was symbolic of the period known as Detente where both the US and USSR sought to deescalate international tensions. Could a similar style of program work to deescalate current tensions between the People’s Republic of China and the United States? In this episode of The Focus, John speaks with long-time space journalist and author Leonard David to find out.
