The author offers opinions on manned space flight. It is stated that there are now more resources for the rescue of astronauts whose flight has suffered an accident than in the 20th century such as orbiting space stations and more permanently operational space vehicles. Agreement is expressed with a study by the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) recommending international cooperation to develop rescue techniques and create standards for space vehicles.
