WH Funds Draft Ends Area Station Funding by 2025

The NASA Marshall Space Flight Center at Redstone Arsenal designs and assembles equipment for the International Space Station. Ending the station's funding in 2025 would end those partnerships. The United States has spent almost $100 billion on the orbiting laboratory and has continually looked for ways to keep it flying.

NASA spends about $4 billion annually to support the International Space Station and its astronauts living there, and the agency spent almost $100 billion over more than a decade to construct the station.

The official budget proposal will be released February 12, delayed from February 5 due to the three-day government shutdown earlier this month.

The last budget approval and extenesion came from the Obama administration where the budget was extended by 10 years in 2014, all the way to 2024. NASA's primary partner on the ISS is Roscosmos, the Russian space agency, and astronauts from Europe, Canada, and Japan also live and work on the ISS.

The space station costs NASA about $4 billion each fiscal year.

Nelson said ending ISS operations in 2025 "would likely decimate Florida's blossoming commercial space industry", a reference to the commercial cargo and future commercial crew launches that will take place from Cape Canaveral as well as support for ISS research.

At the same time, NASA would ramp up a campaign focused on the vicinity of the moon, known as cislunar space, to "establish US pre-eminence to, around and on the moon".

Funding for the International Space Station is crucial to maintaining our main presence in space, and this habitable artificial satellite located in low Earth orbit is an important part of scientific research and advancement of our knowledge of space.

Recently, NASA has been using the ISS to conduct experiments on how human bodies react to long-distance space travel, so that they can determine any effects of a weightless trip to Mars.

Eric Stallmer, the president of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation, said that he looks "forward to working with the administration on a transition plan for the station that includes the commercial sector playing a vital role". One of them is even attached to the station now, as a test site.

Several companies, including Axiom Space, Bigelow Aerospace and NanoRacks have proposed developing commercial stations, in some cases starting with commercial modules on the ISS. "What also is a fact is the ISS is still the only game in town that we have at the moment".
