« Three New Biofuel Centers to Come Online | Main | Mummy, Dearest »



NASA should use part of it for astronaut training, and as a 'pit stop' on the way to and from the moon (once they put a base there, that is).

Not just a science mission...
After all is said and done and the life of the space station is to be deorbited??????? I think it should be thrust to a neutral gravitational point where it could remain as parts for other space craft. As well, all or parts of it could be sent half way to mars giving the mars voyage a safe haven or just a pit stop for refueling, parts, or water/food storage...
As a storage depot it does not even need to be pressurized.
It would break my (and others) heart to see $100,000,000,000 (one hundred BILLION dollars) get burned up in deorbit.
