NASA Makes No Official Complaints On Tourist Space Flight

The NASA has not contacted Russia for today with whatever official complaints on Dennis Tito's sojourn with the international space station, Rosaviacosmos federal aerospace agency spokesmen said to Novosti by way of comment on Daniel Goldin's address to the US Congress, in which the NASA boss critically evaluated the world's first space tourist trip and said that Mr. Tito's presence was making problems for the crew. In fact, the American tourist's trip to the station in the Russian Soyuz TM 32 craft came off without a hitch, and the station is working in a calm and businesslike atmosphere. The Rosaviacosmos makes it a point to turn a blind ear to rumours, and no official statements on the issue have come from the NASA, said our interviewees.
