Bridenstine: NASA To Consider “A Range Of Options” For ISS

7 June 2018
The New York Times reports that NASA is working on plans to “commercialize the International Space Station, which currently costs up to $4 billion a year to maintain.” According to NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine, the agency will consider “a range of options” to allow for private operation of the station. He added that under some options, “the ISS wouldn’t exist in its current form,” or may be “split into a number of different components” or partially “re-orbited.” Bridenstine stressed that no decision has yet been made. NASA’s options for privatization “may be limited by the international agreements establishing the ISS,” which involved over a dozen countries. (Image Credit: NASA)
