NASA Banned From Working With China : Discovery News

To push mankind deeper and deeper into space, more expensive and ambitious missions are needed. Therefore, international collaboration is sought after to share the load. For NASA, however, China won’t be a part of any joint scientific endeavor for the next fiscal year, at least.

As noted by Forbes blogger William Pentland last week, and reported by the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s (AAAS) Science Insider blog in April, a clause included in the U.S. spending bill approved by Congress to avert a government shutdown a few weeks ago has prohibited NASA from coordinating any joint scientific activity with China. The clause also extends to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP).
