December 18, 2014

  Skyab two a mission for both SLS and commercial crew and cargo? its proposed to merge ISS and Human spaceflight budgets and projects in 2025

(A)(1)In 2020 NASA has forecast an ISS budget of 4.6 Billion year

(A)(2) between 2020 and 2025 Human space flight directorate shall  fund the proposed Skylab II (1) for docking to ISS.This is from the human spaceflight directorate budget

(A)(3) The ARM ion powered system shall boost this this stack into GTO and then into LLO or L2 or possibly GEO,This uses a minority of the ISS budget.The ISS budget shall be responsible for commercial crew to ISS after clearing the Van allen belts

(A)(4) After 2025 A second Skylab II(2) shall carry logistics  to the first but logistics Skylab shall become interplanetary spacecraft in their own right.

(A)(5)2028 Skylab II (3) This is the Phobos/Deimos Skylab It may need a logistics Skylab(4)

(A)(6) Skylab 1,2,3 and 4 will need commercial cargo  to GEO,LLO, and Mars orbit

Un-crewed Skylab  to Mars shall carry uncrewed Orion and commercial capsules since the ARM derived ion powered tug should be able to do this job and Orion and Dagon could be tasked with the job of crew ferry, this is forward deployed logistics
