Shuttle and ISS

The Columbia accident has caused the International Space Station program to deal with space logistics issues in a way they never anticipated.

The lessons learned from dealing with thin logistics will contribute to interplanetary supply chain management, and in particular, to Constellation logistics.


The following documents and links provide some current insight into the need for improved space logistics.
