Ma Yue, a sophomore, said he enjoys the freedom and pe

will allow pr上海龙凤品茶微信ivate citizens to stay at the International Space Station (ISS) for mo

nth-long getaways at a cost of about $35,000 per night, the US space agency said on Friday.

The shift reverses a long-standing prohibition against tourists and private interests at the orbiting research lab, and refle

cts a broader push to expand commercial activities at the ISS and in space more generally.

It paves the way for private citizens to travel to the ISS aboard rocket-

and-capsule launch systems being developed by Boeing Co and Elon Musk’s SpaceX. The tw

o companies are set to ferry astronauts to the ISS from US soil for the first time in nearly a decade.

NASA will allow up to two private trips to the station pe

China to remain steadfast protecting national security

China welcomes the United States’ willingness to develop a stable mi

litary-to-military relationship, but will remain steadfast in safeguarding national sove

reignty and security, a senior Chinese military official said on Saturday in Singapore.

In a keynote speech at the annual Shangri-La Dialogue on Saturday morning, acting US Defen

se Secretary Patrick Shanahan said that China and the US can still have a cooperative relati

onship. Although competition does exist between the two countries, it does not always mean conflict, he added.

Shanahan also noted some “destabilizing activities” in Asia and emphasized the US’s military

presence and commitment in the region. He called for more communication between the US and Chi

nese militaries to settle their differences and build a constructive relationship.

China and the US started tit-for-tat tariff exchanges in July,

 when the first round of tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods

took effect. There has been strong opposition to the tariff measures from the US side.

Joe Biden, a Democratic candidate for US president, said on Monda

y, “The only people paying the price are farmers and working people right now”.

“Raising tariffs will hurt both the US and China economies, plus more importantly, they will hurt US farmers, co

nsumers and businesses,” tweeted Republican Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, a major soybean-producing state.

The world’s two largest economies have intensified their consultations to iron out differe

nces on existing trade issues. An 11th round of high-level talks was held in Washington on Thursday and Friday.
