“The old adage is that if you build it, they will come,” said Keith Cowing, a former NASA space station payload manager who runs the popular website NASA Watch. “Well, it’s there, but NASA has a lot of catching up to do in terms of fully utilizing the capability of the space station.”
“… Another way NASA has tried to better use the station was hiring a nonprofit group in 2011 to manage the part of the station designated as a U.S. national laboratory and to entice non-NASA researchers to do their work there. But the Florida-based group — the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space, or CASIS — had early management problems and was able to get its first sponsored payload onboard the station just this month.”
