Space Station For Sale: NASA Administrator Is In Talks With International Companies

Sandra Phillips | 08 June, 2018, 12:58

Three astronauts will launch towards the International Space Station Wednesday morning.

The Soyuz spacecraft's passengers include: Serena Auñón-Chancellor of NASA, Alexander Gerst of the European Space Agency and Sergey Prokopyev, a cosmonaut with the Russian space agency Roscosmos. Bridenstine doesn't deny climate change anymore, but Tuesday he told The Washington Post he has talked to private companies about running the International Space Station.

The space agency plans to live-stream the docking process and also show the astronauts moving from the spacecraft to the ISS to join the current crew: Americans Drew Feustel and Ricky Arnold, and Latvian Oleg Artemyev.

ISS residents' missions typically last five to six months.

NPR's Alexi Horowitz-Ghazi and Emily Sullivan reported in March that private companies Boeing and Space X have been involved in helping with space expeditions for the past two decades.

Once on board, the crew will spend their time carrying out around 250 different science investigations in fields such as biology, Earth science, human research, physical sciences, and technology development. It may, but most Americans still believe NASA's role will be vital in the future.

Other astronauts are already working at the ISS. A flight surgeon, she previously had been in Russian Federation supporting medical operations for International Space Station crew members in Star City.
