ISS is entering its final decade of operational life and NASA is planning to open it for commercial activities.

A Report Of NASA outlines the steps being taken by NASA to develop “both the supply and demand side” of the low-Earth-orbit commercial economy.

A number of private exploration companies, including the Elon Musk-owned SpaceX, are vying for the multi-billion-dollar space economy.

There are others, like Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson, who are planning space tourism flights.

Before Crashing ISS Into Pacific Ocean, NASA is looking forward to a decade of results from research and technology development aboard the space station.
