Is the ISS a joke
ISS: Entrepreneur Elon Musk jokes about the Russian space agency
Elon Musk, entrepreneur and founder of the private American space company SpaceX, enjoyed himself after the successful start of a manned US space mission at the expense of the Russian space agency Roskosmos. "The trampoline works," said the entrepreneur on Saturday during a press conference with NASA boss Jim Bridenstine about the launch of a SpaceX rocket with two astronauts to the international space station. After that, both men laughed - and triggered further ridicule of Roskosmos boss Dmitri Rogozin in online networks.
"This is an inside joke," Musk said of his trampoline utterance. Rogozin once made fun of the fact that US astronauts had for years relied on Russian missiles to get to the ISS. Nasa could also transport its astronauts "on a trampoline to the ISS", the Roskosmos boss once joked.
After the successful launch of SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket with a manned Dragon capsule on Saturday, Rogozin heard quite a bit on online networks such as Twitter. "How do you like that, Dmitri Rogozin?" Wrote a Twitter user with a view to the US success.
Rogozin did not react to the taunts, but his spokesman finally felt compelled to react. "We don't really understand the hysteria surrounding the successful launch of a Crew Dragon spaceship," wrote Vladimir Ustimenko on Twitter. "What should have happened a long time ago has happened now."Newsletter

Alexei Pushkov, a member of the Russian House of Lords, even etched: "This is a flight to the International Space Station, not to Mars." At the same time, the politician portrayed it on the Telegram messenger service as a nuisance that his country had so far had to help the USA out with rockets: "Russia needs space for its own young cosmonauts."
The head of the Roscosmos program for manned spaceflight, Sergei Krikalev, reacted more friendly and confident than Musk and his own compatriots. He greeted the successful US colleagues in a video message on Twitter and said that the success of the US mission would open up new opportunities that would benefit the entire international space program.
