MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to Andreas Schutz, the German Aerospace Center is currently working with a number of Russian companies.
"Despite all the political differences, science, especially cosmonautics, stands for joint international cooperation in space," Schutz said, commenting on the Western economic sanctions’ impact on cooperation with Russia.
According to Schutz, the DLR is currently working with a number of Russian companies.
"For example, the launch of a satellite with a telescope to search for dark matter is scheduled for next year. The Max Planck Society [one of the leading research organizations in Germany] will also be involved in the project. Moreover, we would like to work with Russia on other potential projects in space robotics," he emphasized.
The MAKS air show opens at the Zhukovsky Airfield in the Moscow Region on Tuesday and will continue until Sunday. Over 150 companies from 25 countries are expected to take part in the air show.
