Russia is kicking NASA out of the International Space Station in 2020 Vox

On Tuesday, Russia announced that starting in 2020, it will no longer allow NASA astronauts on the International Space Station, in retaliation for sanctions levied by the US because of  Russia's invasion of Crimea.

How can Russia bar American astronauts from a station that both countries own? Simple. Right now, NASA relies on Russian rockets to get its astronauts to and from space, paying them $70.7 million for each one-way ticket.

At least we have Elon to save us.

Is it me or have relations between USA and Russia gotten nasty this year?
