Abstract:

In 1984 the National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA instituted a program to assemble a research station in space. Since that time major changes in the space stations design, cost, and schedule have occurred. As a result of these changes and the apparent instability of the program, the former Chairman, House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, asked GAO to provide information on annual changes in the space stations design, estimated cost, and schedule since 1985 the annual budget requests and resulting congressional funding for the space station for fiscal years 1985-91 and the impact of NASAs 1989 program review on the space stations cost and capabilities.
