    For sale: space station, already in orbit. Over a billion miles on the odometer. Freshly installed international docking adapter and inflatable activity module. Gently used. Inquire within. [LINK]

    NASA is giving us some more insight into its plans to get humans to Mars, under the blanket mission called ‘Journey to Mars,’ and during the press conference, NASA Deputy Associate Administrator for Exploration Systems Development Bill Hill revealed that the current hope is to hand off control of the International Space Station to a commercial owner by sometime around the mid 2020s.

    “NASA’s trying to develop economic development in low-earth orbit,” Hill said, speaking on a panel of NASA staff assembled to discuss the upcoming Mars mission. “Ultimately, our desire is to hand the space station over to either a commercial entity or some other commercial capability so that research can continue in low-earth orbit, so that research can continue in low-earth orbit.”

    I’ve got a buck fiddy on me, NASA.

    The question is, how much of the station can they sell to commercial interests? A couple of those modules belong to Russia and they are likely to detach them for their own purposes.
