International Space Station Supplies Crisis > > > < < <
Hauling supplies to the International Space Station is in crisis.
The U.S. is looking for ways to cut costs in its space program, hauling supplies to space is a big cost. NASA is looking at all available options to cut this cost - including using Russian services.
In a little more than a year, NASA will have to buy rides from the Russians to get astronauts to and from the station.
In reality, the bigger threat to the space station's viability is cargo delivery. The space shuttle hauls a lot of stuff to the space station each time it goes there.
