ESA / Science & Exploration / Human and Robotic Exploration / International Space Station The cost of the International Space Station, including development, assembly and running costs over 10 years, comes to €100 billion. High technology on the space frontier is not cheap. The good news is that it comes cheaper than you might think. When President Reagan first proposed Space Station Freedom in 1984, the projected price tag was $8 billion. An estimated $11.2 billion was spent on the Freedom project before its cancellation in. First we need an estimate of the cost of the ISS, and this article in the Space Review estimates the total cost up to 2015 as $150 billion (in 2010 dollars). That's the total cost including all the international partners. The cost to achieve comparable expectations at assembly complete has grown from an estimate of $17.4B to over $30B. Much of this cost growth is a consequence of. The concept for this massive project was first conceived in the early 1990s, motivated to a large degree by the end of the space race between the United States and the Soviet Union. At that time a decision was made by the U.S. To begin negotiations that would lead to a Memorandum of Agreement between the space agencies of the U.S., Russia, Canada, Japan, and Europe (representing 11 European.
