The International Space Station
The International Space Station (ISS) is a joint project with contributions from NASA, Russian Space agency Roscosmos and the European Space Agency. The purpose of the ISS is to conduct research in space, as well as to build and maintain the space station itself.
The International Space Station, also known as ISS, is a space station that orbits the Earth. The ISS was first launched on 20 November 1998 and it has been continuously occupied since then.
The International Space Station is a project of the International Space Company which is an alliance between American, European and Russian space agencies. It has been continuously inhabited since November 2000.
The owner of the ISS is NASA who owns it with some help from other international partners including those from Canada, Japan and Brazil.
In 2011 NASA predicted that by 2020 they would be able to send astronauts to the ISS without help from Russia as they would be able to use private companies for transportation instead.
The first part of the ISS was launched on 20 November 1998 on a Russian rocket called Proton-K launcher.
International Space Station is a space station in low Earth orbit. It has been continuously occupied for 18 years and 356 days, having exceeded its originally planned design life of 5 years by a factor of 2.
The International Space Station is a habitable artificial satellite in low Earth orbit. The ISS is the largest man-made body that flies in space.
The ISS has been in continuous operation since November 2000 and has been visited by astronauts from 15 different nations. The station can also serve as a micro gravity research laboratory in which scientists can conduct experiments in sample environments to see how humans, plants, and animals react to weightlessness.
The International Space Station orbits Earth at around 400 kilometers above the planet. It is an incredible feat of engineering. But what’s even more awe-inspiring is what’s happening inside it.
The Antonov An-225 Mriya, the world’s largest airplane, just delivered 13 tons of food and supplies to the station. That’s enough for more than 3 months of space missions! A typical day on board starts with breakfast at 8:00 am and ends with dinner at 8:00 pm (or 18:00 hours).
