DAN GOLDIN SPEAKS DURING INTERVIEW WITH REUTERS.
National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) chief Daniel Goldin speaks during a Reuters interview in his ninth-floor office at NASA's headquarters in Washington D.C. May 24, 2001. NASA's relations with Russia are still recovering from a "symmetry of mistrust" that festered over California businessman Dennis Tito's flight to the International Space Station, Goldin said during the interview. NASA and other partners in the International Space Station had strenuously objected when the Russians said they would send Tito aboard a Soyuz taxi flight to the station. Tito reportedly paid $20 million to the cash-strapped Russian agency.
