Guest: Ronald Suny, PhD, Professor of History, University of Michigan, Emeritus Professor of Political Science and History, University of Chicago, Senior Researcher, National Research University – Higher School of Economics in Saint Petersburg, Russia We’re going to build a space station on the moon together with Russia – that word came today. Throughout the turbulent history of US-Soviet relations, space was one area the rival nations found room to cooperate. Interesting that we’re seeing this new space collaboration announced at a time when political tension between the US and Russia is so high. We’ve been slapping diplomatic sanctions on each other in a kind of tit-for-tat. And each week brings new revelations of just how hard Russia worked to influence the 2016 election, spreading misinformation and even running ads on Facebook aimed at amplifying social and political divisions in America.
