Musk, the CEO of SpaceX, seems to insinuate that his business could prevent Russia from putting the ISS in jeopardy.
Without Russian assistance, the ISS may fall out of orbit, according to the head of Russia’s space agency.
“If you block cooperation with us, who will save the ISS from an uncontrolled de-orbit and fall into the United States or Europe?” Rogozin said in a tweet.
“There is also the option of dropping a 500-ton structure to India and China. Do you want to threaten them with such a prospect? The ISS does not fly over Russia, so all the risks are yours,” he continued.
Musk responded by sending a picture of the SpaceX logo.
Then Musk stated that SpaceX would assist in the ISS’s rescue.

A Russian segment is currently linked to the International Space Station.
A Dragon may be docked to give reboost capabilities and attitude control to solve difficulties.
