The Lunar Gateway is an in-development space station in lunar orbit intended to serve as a solar-powered communications hub, science laboratory, short-term habitation module, and holding area for rovers and other robots. I am not doubting NASA team about it but I am just asking why is the lunar gateway so important. Why can't we just dismantle International Space Station and join them again in lunar orbit . It can serve in the same way and can be economically viable as anyways ISS is going to expire one day.
