The ISS will burn up in Earth’s atmosphere in a few years, paving the way for new businesses in space.

This plan has its risks. NASA is betting there will be a lot of demand for commercial space stations, which are all supposed to launch around 2027. But only a fifth of ISS crew resources that NASA has set aside for private companies to develop their businesses in space have been used thus far, according to Gatens, the ISS director. And competition for customers could get even more intense as space stations launched by China, Russia, and India open for business.

NASA'S IN THE COLD, COLD GROUND. I'm not even sure where that crack came from; but the whole world is focused on the nonsense we conjure up to distract us from the monstrous void in our comprehension of what space is; while the more profoundly attached to the "game" gamble on the profitability of this or that company's plans to develop "space". Part of me loves this decidedly human approach to just about everything movable. There's this metallic asteroid whose value we've already calculated as being worth our global economy. Unbelievable? It's one way to approach life. The American Way.

Richard Feynman pointed out that the space stations were not generating scientific papers. I'm less academic, but I'm pretty sure that if they were commercially viable, I'd have seen at least one advert with "Developed on the ISS!"
