    Default Replacing the International Space Station

    Russia is talking about transitioning out of the ISS starting in 2025, moving their efforts to a Russian station in polar orbit.

    The US & partners are planning an exit from ISS in 2029 - 2030. Replacing it will be a NASA program called 'Commercial LEO Destinations (CLD),' which will use commercial space stations like those from Axiom Space and Sierra Space.
