Skylab's end marked a temporary stop to NASA's work on long-duration spaceflight. However, the agency resumed long flights during the shuttle-Mir program and these days, regularly sends astronauts for months at a time on the International Space Station.
America's first & best space station effort. We NEED another US solution to getting crew up there so the russian's space efforts can STARVE for lack of our $$$.
