The U.S. & Russia Are Building a Deep Space Gateway, Here's What You Need to Know - Read More: The U.S. And Cuba: A Brief History Of A Complicated Relationship “Just months after he seized power in Cuba, Fidel Castro visited Washington in April 1959 and received a warm welcome. Castro met Vice President Richard Nixon, placed a wreath at the base of both the Lincoln and Jefferson memorials and was photographed looking up in seeming admiration of both U.S. presidents.” In Space, U.S. and Russia Friendship Untethered “Even as the U.S. and Russian governments engage in a Cold War-esque, diplomatic tit-for-tat, the countries’ space agencies are forging towards a future in the final frontier.

Павел Жданов : I think the best eaxample of USA - USSR was Luna2 impactor mission. Basically USSR sent a probe on collision course to the Moon in order to get back some closeup photos and observe other telemetri sent by probe just before the impact. The problem was at that time there was no network of relay sattelites and all the ground stations capable to receive the data were US ones. So soviet scientists asked US for assistance which US provided.
