President Biden signs CHIPS Act, approving International Space Station extension to 2030

The United States is officially on board with operating the International Space Station through 2030.

President Joe Biden signed the Creating Helpful Incentives to Produce Semiconductors (CHIPS) Act into law today (Aug. 9). The act, which Congress approved late last month, is so named because it commits $53 billion to boost the U.S. semiconductor industry. But it also has many other measures, including a NASA authorization bill — the first one to pass Congress in five years.
