Posted: Mon, Apr 23, 2007, 8:18 AM ET (1218 GMT)
The United States and the United Kingdom signed an agreement last week to study means of cooperation in future space exploration missions. The agreement, signed by the administrator of NASA and the director general of science and innovation for the UK's Department of Trade and Industry, commits NASA and the British National Space Centre (BNSC) to "detailed discussions on specific areas of potential collaboration", including lunar exploration. The UK has specific strengths in small satellites and other robotic technologies that British officials believe could prove useful in future missions. The agreement set no timetables for future cooperation, nor any discussion of budgets.
