President Donald Trump's budget stops funding for the international space station by 2025, according to media reports. The proposal would instead move to privatize the station. NASA has supported the ISS for more than two decades and contributes between $3 billion and $4 billion to the project yearly.

"The federal government owns and operates certain infrastructure that would be more appropriately owned by state, local, or private entities," the Trump infrastructure plan says. Federal agencies would gain new ...

A group of professional and citizen scientists from Project MERCCURI and the Human Microbiome Project have discovered that the microbes living on the international space station (ISS) are similar to the bacteria found in homes on Earth, according to new research in the open-access journal PeerJ.
The new sensor, which is called simply the Space Debris Sensor (or SDS for short), is designed to monitor any impacts caused by the smaller, untraceable bits of space junk that are simply too tiny for NASA to monitor. The SDS is firmly mounted on the exterior of the international space station, where it will ...
