Dear Dr. Gibbons:
I am pleased to submit the costs and schedule impacts for Space Station Alpha which supplement the implementation plan provided to the President on September 7, 1993. The Space Station Alpha program will achieve the goals established by the President.
The Alpha program can be accomplished within the specified $2.1 billion annual funding level through Permanent Human Capability. This funding level supports a First Element Launch in September 1998 and Permanent Human Capability in September 2003.
