Depends how long they may need to stay there for research, Maybe about 1 - 2 years or so.
Albama, Moscow, U.S, Germany, France, Japan, Canada
U.S. built the unity. Japan works with NASA. Canada built the 55-foot long robotic arm. Lastly,Russia built the two search molecues with life support. This is how these countries were in volved in the International Space Station{ISS}.

ISS is in the orbit of earth, it is moving around the earth as the moon is moving, it completes one obhit in 90 minutes, i.e. 45 min. day and 45 min night
Normally there are 6 crew members on ISS
you are spending every minute of every day with one person for two years. Now imagine spending that two years in an enclosure not much bigger than a classroom.
NASAAnswer: As the name suggests the International Space Station (ISS) was worked on by several nations. It features parts of several space station projects. Overall it was better return on investment to have many partners involved in the project. The projects include: the American Freedom the...
Based on the Duracell advertissments, the International Space Station "trusts Duracell."
No. Several other countries have space agencies, such as the European Space Agency.
Galileo is famous for inventing the thermometer, perfecting the telescope, and for experimenting with gravity. No, galileo did not discover astronomy. But he sure did discover the four moons that revolve jupiter.
A new room was just added. See the related link below for more information.
A building, by definition, generally stays in the same place. The Space Station is constantly orbiting the earth. It is therefore not a building.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, there were a large number of rocket scientists who were either unemployed or unpaid. A major risk of this situation was transfer of the knowledge that these scientists and engineers possessed being bought in by unstable regimes or regimes that were hostile to...
to seespace if you are in Japan or Mexico etc. not just in one state or province;)
It is a jobs program for engineers who are otherwise unemployable
The ISS is 357 feet long, and compare that to a football field which is 360 feet long.

You eat waffles like all food in space from a tube. its like yogurt, you pretty much drink it.
The average speed of the International Space Station is 17,221 miles per hour. It completes an orbit every 91.48 minutes at an average altitude of 222.3 miles.
About 220 miles plus or minus a little.
Yes it can. We just saw it from Des Moines, Iowa.
The earth station depends on the following parameters• Transmitter power• Choice of frequency• Gain of antenna• Antenna efficiency• Antenna pointing accuracy• Noise temperature • Local conditions such as wind, weather etc,• Polarization• Propagation losses
The astronauts wear tethers whenever they exit the space station so that they remain attached to the station. Otherwise, without sufficient gravity to keep them close by, they could easily drift away into space.
artificial. it is the largest artificial satellite that has ever orbited earth
the United States of America, Russian Federation, Japan, Canada and eleven member states of the European Space Agency (Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom).
The robotic arm of the international space station is officially called the Remote Manipulator System or RMS for short. In Canada it is usually referred to as the Canadarm, due the the fact that is was built in Canada.
the Johnson Space Center was created a long time ago. It runs all space missions for the united States
Experiments conducted on the ISS (International Space Station) include vaccines for many diseases plagueing us on earth, and another one in particular being growth of vegatation in spac
Peggy Whitson is currently nearing the end of her term as commander of the International Space Station.
The Space Station doesn't form holes in the Ozone. Pollution on Planet Earth does that.
There are many experiments carried out from crystal formation, plant growth, to making drinking water from waste. I will add a link at the bottom that will give you some idea of the variety of experiments

To teach you what you did wrong is wrong and that you should "learn" from your mistakes...... Well, what ever it is, it is gay, because usually your friends are there and you talk..... So, what really is the point?
The first American space station was Skylab (sometimes referred to as Skylab 1) which was made from an empty and converted Saturn V rocket case. It was launched in May 1973, and re-entered Earth's atmosphere when its orbit decayed in July 1979, long after the last crew had departed. The only other...
well i have no idea bu i wish i did help me out here people and for another thing all i knoe is that USA and maybe china helped out
Anhydrous Ammonia is used in passive cooling  systems aboard the ISS, primarily in Ammonia Heat Pipes.    Liquid AA, when heated, turns to a gaseous state and draws heat  along with it. It is put into a sealed aluminum pipe that has  internal ridge veins running its length; as one end of the...
The International Space Station (or ISS for short) is like a puzzle or legos. It is put together, 1 piece at a time. In all, there are 100 major peices that the ISS is built of. The ISS is expected to be finished in 2011.
The research done on the ISS (International Space Station) is conducted in space. It includes growing crystals for technological purposes. Studies performed on the Arecibo radio telescope regarding space are performed on Earth.
  The ISS is 380 kilometers or about 236 miles above the Earth.
There has been approximately 358 people to visit the International  Space Station. Some of the visitors have been to the space station  numerous times.
They sure attract each other - there is no reason why they should not. However, if you plug in the numbers in the calculation for gravitation, you get such low amounts of attraction, that it can safely be ignored for practical purposes. This is because the masses involved are very small.
no a sound will not be produced because sound waves cannot travel through empty space they are mechanical waves
The earliest rockets were made from black powder . The Chinese invented black powder and used them in simple rockets like you would buy today to celebrate the Fourth of July. The loose black powder was packed into rolled paper and a fuse was inserted that is made from paper and black powder.....
Varies between apogee and perigee of 346 and 336 km with a decay of about 2 km a month.
I can't say I'm a big expert on this, but I consume a lot of media from NASA (NASA TV, NASA Youtube channel, etc etc) and it seems to me that the dominant languages on board are English and Russian, but the cosmonauts all seem to be fluent in English. So English seems to be the lingua franca on...
probaly yes but i dont know the answer of this question but yes
Internashinal space station
Yes, they are. Specifically the International Space Station (or ISS, but really any space station can conduct an experiment. Hope this helped! :)
They will have to recycle the water.
the space shuttle and the Soyuz rocket
International Space Station
Getting a space station in space is just like a construction site on Earth. the only thing different is you have to get the parts up into space with a shuttle. In the shuttle, there is a big loading dock to put parts in. This is right behind the cockpit. Its sort of like a pickup truck that will go...

Because Russia was the only country with a permanent presence in space with Mir. Russia learnt a great deal with the successes and pitfalls of Mir. Most of the critical systems on the Iss are designed and built in Russia, in fact it's more of a Russian space station with international modules, but...
no, mir is the soviet union and Russian space station
MIR is Russian for "peace or world". It was a Russian space station that was the first inhabited space station in space. It was in operation from 1986 til 2001 when it's orbit was allowed to degenerate and burnt up in the Earths atmosphere. It should not be confused with the International Space...
Same as the distance between the Earth and Sun, that is 93 Million miles, give or take 278 km (173 mi) and 460 km (286 mi), the stationary orbit distance, and 12,756.32 km (7,926.41 mi), the diameter of the Earth.
it gets supplies every other year or ever year.
28 miles above earth17,000 miles an hour
Highly unlikely - they won't be allowed to drink stimulants, smoke or sip alcohol let alone "do drugs". They are professionals.
