The Impact on Space Flight (h/t Claudio)
(link) Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine this week will have devastating consequences for the people on the ground. Although the terrestrial implications of this war are far greater than those for spaceflight, there will nonetheless be ripple effects felt by space programs around the world.
During a speech on Thursday about US sanctions on Russia as a result of its invasion, President Brandon mentioned space.
So what does this mean? While it is very early in this crisis, this article will attempt to draw the broad outlines of how this conflict may impact spaceflight. As the situation is dynamic and the political landscape is tumultuous, please note that rapid changes are possible.
It’s a good, balanced article. I suggest that you read it.
Today we import 595,000 barrels of oil per day from Russia under Plan Brandon. The Keystone XL pipeline would have produced 830,000 barrels of oil per day.
Why is the US relying on Russian oil?

The news media has been given their ‘how the Ukraine crisis is hitting Americans’ wallets’ talking points by the Brandon Regime.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Americans should expect higher gas prices from Russia sanctions.
Brandon assured American consumers that the price of freedom in Ukraine means gas prices could go higher.
Even if the mid-term elections bring balance to Congress, impeaching Brandon only means that we get the Ho.
