The International Space Station (ISS) is a permanently crewed on-orbit laboratory that enables scientific research supporting innovation on Earth and future deep space exploration. From design to launch, 15 countries collaborated to assemble the world's only permanently crewed orbital facility, which can house a crew of six and 150 ongoing experiments annually across an array of disciplines. The ISS represents a global effort to expand our knowledge and improve life on Earth while testing technology that will extend our reach to the moon, Mars and beyond.

Boeing officially turned over the U.S. on-orbit segment of the ISS to NASA on March 5, 2010, and continues to provide key engineering support services and capability enhancements, as well as processing for laboratory experiment racks. Boeing’s assessments have shown it is possible to sustain the life of the station’s primary structural hardware at least through 2030.

Gateway

NASA is working with its partners and suppliers to design and develop the Gateway, a moon-orbiting outpost that will serve as a base for human and robotic expeditions on the moon, and for future missions to Mars. The U.S. presidential administration’s goal of “boots on the moon” in 2024 relies on the Gateway.

Boeing’s Gateway concept builds on the company’s experience from designing, building and operating the ISS for more than 20 years. Boeing is working on a habitation module and an airlock module that doubles as additional living/work space.

Launched aboard rockets including NASA’s Space Launch System, these Gateway modules and others would connect with one another in lunar orbit using NASA’s Orion capsule or a space tug. Following astronauts’ return to the moon’s surface via a lunar lander, the Gateway will become a hub for continuing missions to the moon and Mars for NASA, its international partners, and private companies.

The Nations of the International Space Station

NASA selected Boeing as prime contractor for the International Space Station on Aug. 17, 1993, and the original cost-plus-award-fee contract began on Jan. 13, 1995. Boeing is responsible for maintaining the station at peak performance levels so the full value of the unique research laboratory is available to NASA, its international partners, other U.S. government agencies and private companies.
