NASA offers SpaceX $843 million to destroy the International Space Station

NASA is preparing to destroy the International Space Station (ISS), awarding SpaceX a contract worth up to $843 million to safely push the station out of orbit and back to Earth.

According to the space agency’s plans, SpaceX’s specially designed deorbit vehicle will tow the football-field-sized ISS back to Earth sometime after its operational life ends in 2030. The ISS will crash into our planet’s atmosphere with a speed of more than 17,000 mph (27,500 km/h) before landing in a crash site in the ocean.
