We discuss prospects for measuring the isotopic composition of galactic cosmic rays with Astromag, a proposed superconducting magnet spectrometer facility for conducting particle astrophysics on the Space Station. Following a brief review of the objectives and status of cosmic ray isotope measurements, we discuss the contribution that Astromag could make in extending these measurements to much higher energy, and present a strawman design for an experiment that might accomplish these goals.
