You know, here is one of the most powerful things about human space exploration, humans doing challenging things together, and there is an opportunity, but it takes leadership,” Glover said on the sidelines of the Space Symposium in Colorado Springs. Glover noted that Russia and the US already work together on the International Space Station and that is one of the “best relationships between Russia and America.” “We could do more, but it would take leadership to give and take,” he said. “It means America would have to make room for Russia and Russia would have to make room for America. And that is at the very highest levels. And if our leaders could take a lesson from us, I think we would, we’d have a chance at doing it. So we could but whether or not we will, it’s up to our senior leaders.” Glover added that he saw more room for cooperation with China too. “And we could work with China. Our Congress hasn’t told us we can’t do anything with China. We can only do specific things,” he said.
