ISS during STS-135 mission (NASA) The White House's proposed 2019 budget may seek to end the International Space Station in the mid-2020s. A leaked version of the draft budget proposal seeks to end direct federal support of the ISS in 2025 as it focuses efforts on ramping up development of cislunar capabilities. NASA and the ISS partners have agreed to operate the ISS only through 2024, and said in recent months they were not in a hurry to make a decision on the station's future. Some in industry, as well as researchers who use the station, are concerned about the potential termination of the station before commercial successors are in orbit.
