Blocks Russian rocket engine sales

1 May, 2014

Space Exploration Technologies wins a court order blocking the sale of Russian-made rocket engines to a Boeing-Lockheed Martin venture for the U.S. Air Force because the transaction may violate a March 16th presidential order of sanctions against the head of Russia’s defense and space industries.  The order is temporary, lasting until the judge can get opinions from the US Departments of State, Commerce and the Treasury on whether the sale directly or indirectly violates those sanctions.
