House Science and Technology Committee’s Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics Examines the Status of the International Space Station

“Although NASA talks about providing research opportunities on the ISS, we cannot forget that the funding cuts NASA has made to its microgravity research programs in recent years–whether willingly or not–have largely decimated that research community,” stated Udall. “I think the onus has to be on NASA to prove that it means what it says by taking meaningful steps both to make the ISS a productive venue for research and to start to rebuild that research community. Yet, it won’t be possible to have a productive ISS unless the facility can be sustained after the Shuttle is retired.”
