[i][b]President Obama[/b]: I also understand that today marks an anniversary of sorts for us and our Russian colleagues. Thirty six years ago, we launched a U.S. Apollo spacecraft and a Soviet Union Soyuz capsule towards a rendezvous in space.
It is pretty exciting to know that American astronauts and Russian cosmonauts are not just shaking hands 36 years later but are working every day with partners from other nations to represent humankind coming together in space.
[b]Cosmonaut Sergei Volkov[/b]: Yes Mr. President, our crew's really international right now. Here are representatives of three agencies, NASA, Roscosmos and JAXA.
We are working as one family actually. Not as a crew — we are more than just part of or representatives of each country — we are one big family.
Now those [STS-135] guys who appeared almost a week ago share with us our brilliant International Space Station.[/i]
