International Space Station (ISS) 


It seems that NASA is changing the script on how the International Space Station (ISS) is being used. At present it is a place where government space agencies join forces to work together, however it could also be used as a business hub as well.

NASA has put out a call that could see the commercial use of the ISS expanded to private outfits, who may wish to take advantage of its unique capabilities. One example is to use the low-Earth orbit (LEO) facility's underused attachment ports.

Companies have been soliciting ideas about this since the start of July and they have until the end of the month to get all of their ideas in. The agency put a call out to private firms that may which to use the facilities for commercial purposes.
