(US, LANKAPUVATH) –President Donald Trump wants to end US funding for the International Space Station (ISS) by 2025 with the aim of putting it into private hands.

His plans for ISS and the Nasa space programme were unveiled in his 2019 budget proposal. Mr Trump wants to increase Nasa spending by 3% next year.

But it also includes $150m (£108m) to “encourage commercial development” at ISS to replace American payments.

The space station is scheduled to operate through 2024.
