Now in just as backwards a fashion, a draft bill that will see funding pulled from the International Space Station has been proposed by the Trump administration.
Commentators point out that any budget proposal from the Trump administration would be subject to scrutiny and approval by Congress, but even the announcement of the intention to cancel ISS funding could send a signal to NASA's worldwide partners that the U.S. is no longer interested in continuing the programme.
It could be construed by the global space community as the U.S. not being interested in the programme any more. Many partners at NASA have yet to decide if they would continue working with the station after the year 2024. In 20 years, the US government has spent more than $87billion on ISS. The ISS costs NASA three to four billion dollars every year and represents an $87 billion investment for the US. In return, we have access to a unique laboratory floating above the Earth where experiments can be carried out in microgravity. The duo will retrieve science samples exposed to outer space and install a high gain antenna on the rear of the Zvezda service module. NASA shall keep running the ISS till 2024 with help extended from Obama administration in the year 2014. Some previous report shows that Congress has held a meeting to discuss what to do with ISS after the money runs out.
The Nasa Transition Authorization Act that President Trump signed in 2017 has reportedly asked the space agency to find a way to move away from majority Nasa funding for the ISS missions.
Two NASA astronauts have successfully conducted the first spacewalk of the year, replacing a degraded robotic "hand" outside the International Space Station (ISS).
The first components for the ISS were launched two decades ago, in 1998, and it is expected to remain in operation until 2028. But for now, the issue is that commercial companies will not be able to conduct such a mission within 2024, and within this short period it is impossible to develop an alternative to ISS. The Congress also has given its consent to the Deep Space Gateway and to build a space station near the moon, but there is no information about when the work will start on these projects.
