NASA hopes to get OK for an orbiting station

NASA will give President Reagan a proposal for the nation's next major space project, an orbiting space station, within a year and hopes have it in orbit by 1992, NASA Administrator James Beggs said.

Mr. Beggs said NASA hopes to get start-up money from Congress in the fiscal 1985 budget and begin construction in fiscal 1986. No exact figures have been determined, but it is estimated such an orbiting station will cost between $5 billion and $10 billion.
