The Trump administration is reportedly hoping to privatize the International Space Station.

That's according to The Washington Post, which says it's obtained a NASA document that outlines plans for privatization when the U.S. government stops funding the station in 2025.

It's not clear how putting the station in private hands would work, since the ISS is an international program involving a number of other countries.

NASA will release its budget proposal Monday, and the privatization plan will reportedly be included.
