                                                  MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's space chief says he has secured government funds to avoid mothballing the 60 billion pound International Space Station this year, but says the outpost's long-term future is still uncertain.

Russian Soyuz and Progress craft have become the only means of sending up cosmonauts and servicing the orbiting station since the U.S. space shuttle Colombia disintegrated in February, causing the U.S. shuttle fleet to be grounded indefinitely.

            I wish Russia and US would just get along on the
         space program,  right now we need to get the
           3 currently up there, back home.  Then argue about
             money.

         found no remedy for the worst of them all --- the apathy of human beings."
