The Internat. Space Station (ISS), the most complex scientific space project ever attempted, remains incomplete. The space shuttle, the only vehicle capable of transporting large segments of the station into orbit, is critical to its completion. NASA plans to complete ISS assembly and retire the shuttle in 2010 in order to pursue a new generation of space flight vehicles, which will not begin to be available until 2015. To provide crew rotation and logistical support during this 5-year gap, NASA plans to rely on spacecraft developed by the commercial sector and other countries. The author examined the risks and challenges NASA faces in: completing assembly of the ISS by 2010; and providing logistics and maintenance to the ISS after 2010. Illustrations.
