The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has initiated a major effort to establish a permanent manned presence in space to expand the exploration and use of space for activities that enhance the security and welfare of mankind. In particular, Space Station would: - Establish a means for the permanent presence of people in space.o Provide a capability for routine, continuous utilization of space for science, applications, technology development, commercial utilization, national security and general operations. - Lead to the development and exploitation of the synergistic effects of the man/machine combination in space. - Provide for essential system elements and operational practices for an integrated national space capability. - Reduce the cost and complexity of living in and using space.
