Commercial space station Orbital Reef's design phase passes NASA review


Re: Why deorbit the ISS?

Yes, it is so worn that it can't be rehabilitated. Not only would it be bordering on needing a complete rebuild (impossible in orbit), but is largely outdated anyway. There's also the ongoing expense of maintenance, far higher than would be the case with a new station.
