U.S. Information Agency (USIA)
U.S.-Russian cooperation was an important focus for USIA programs in FY 1995. Listeners throughout the world tuned into the Voice of America's live coverage of the Atlantis docking with the Mir space station in June 1995, while television stations rebroadcast Newsfile reports on the historic mission. USIA's Information Bureau produced a brochure on U.S.-Russia space cooperation for distribution at the Moscow summit in June 1995, in addition to detailed background articles on the U.S.-Russian space agreement and efforts to build the International Space Station. USIA programs also demonstrated to foreign audiences the tangible benefits of U.S. space technology, from NASA contributions to biomedical research to data about the Earth's atmosphere gathered by the Perseus project and the use of Shuttle radar to locate an ancient Cambodian city.
