Better yet, get SpaceX to send up a few boosters to transpose the station's orbit closer to the equator where it will be more useful as a "garage" for assembling deep space ships. The current highly inclined orbit was set up to make things easier for the Russians. Imagine them not finding the camper where they left it. (How do you say "What the?" in Russian?)
