Mariel Borowitz, associate professor in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, spoke to NPR about how the war in Ukraine has strained relationships about the International Space Station. She also discussed the history of the craft, which was built on international collaboration.

An excerpt:

"At the time 'it was in the U.S. national interest to engage with Russia,' says Mariel Borowitz, an associate professor at the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at the Georgia Institute of Technology. The joint program kept Russian rocket scientists employed during a moment when Russia faced political and economic instability, she says."
