Skylab no longer exists. The last crew left for the final time in 1974. It re-entered the earth's atmosphere 5 years later and burned up.

Why was Skylab abandoned?

It wasn't intentionally abandoned. It was originally thought that the Space Shuttle would be operational before Skylab fell to earth. The Space Shuttle would then raise Skylab into a higher orbit to be used by multiple Space Shuttle crews, but an overabundance of solar flares caused Skylab to fall to earth 2 years before it normally would have. Delays in the development of the Space Shuttle spelled the demise of Skylab.
