The US Congress passed a bill on Wednesday that would allow the US to continue flying astronauts on Russian Soyuz rockets to the International Space Station.

If signed by the President George W Bush, the bill will let the US keep paying Russia for launches until 2012, the year that a US replacement for the shuttle is scheduled to be ready. At that time, Congress will review the legislation.

“NASA appreciates the efforts of Congress to resolve restrictions placed on our partnership with Russia,? says NASA administrator Michael Griffin. “Congress’s action helps to ensure the continuous presence of US astronauts on the International Space Station.?

The Iran Nonproliferation Act (INA) of 2000 was designed to prevent the spread of nuclear technologies from Russia to Iran. One clause made it illegal for the US to pay Russia for goods and services related to the space station, including Soyuz capsule rides, until the White House was satisfied that nuclear technologies were not being sold to Iran.

Space station crew takes walk to install new camera November 9, 2005

In a 5 ½-hour space walk, ISS crew detached an old environmental probe that hadn’t worked in at least two years, and tossed it into the void about 210 miles above Earth. It should burn up in the atmosphere in 100 days. Debris left in orbit at altitudes under 300 miles typically burns up in the atmosphere within a few years.

In the case of the environmental probe, NASA engineers had feared its fasteners could come loose and damage the orbiting outpost if it wasn’t removed. To protect the space station, the probe was tossed in the opposite direction the station was moving. The probe had been installed in 2000 to collect data and measure the magnetic field around the station.
