NASA Wants The Lunar Gateway To Do Everything For Everyone

Keith's note: In addition to all of the unfinished work from ISS that will somehow be accomplished on the Lunar Gateway NASA also wants to handle samples returned from Mars. Back in the 80s when NASA toyed with this idea they decided that an entire mini-space station was needed. Oddly it was on the same scale as the Gateway. To be certain, technology has advanced since then but the notion that NASA can shove activities with requiring high levels of biocontainment into a small, cramped mini-space station strains the limits of credibility.
