Parent Category: Artificial Satellites
The International Space Station (or ISS) is a Space Station jointly being constructed by NASA and the Russian Space Agency, along with Canada, Japan, Brazil, and the ESA, in an effort to send astronauts into space for long durations and conduct experiments in space. Construction began in 1998 and is scheduled to be completed in 2011. Our International Space Station category is for questions related to the International Space Station and its operations.
The International Space Station is a large spacecraft in orbitaround Earth. It serves as a home where crews of astronauts andcosmonauts live. The space station is also a unique sciencelaboratory. Several nations worked together to build and use thespace station. The space station is made of parts...

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}.
Mostly, we put it there. A simplified explanation would be thatthere is an area of space just above the atmosphere in which stuffkinda floats and doesn't fall down very fast but doesn't fly offeither. It is now in orbit. This is an area of space in which wetend to dump stuff off rockets and space...
For one thing they make oxygen. and you can eat them as well not to mention the psychological benefits that the sight of greenery may have on the people working in the alien environment of space.
with grass and straw . With Metal rings and a electronic space pilot and yellow grass
The International Space Station is in a low Earth orbit between 199 mi and 216 mi. To maintain this orbit, the space station has to travel at a speed of about 17,500 miles per hour. If a spacecraft was launched sideways off the Earth with a low velocity, gravity would pull it towards the ground....
As of 2010, artificial gravity technology has not been invented.
Yes, because people who lives in a space stations need an oxygen. Oxygen that people needs can be also taken from plants. That's it is also "possible" to plants to grow.
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

The Mir space station was deliberately de-orbited in 2001 and broke up on re-entry.
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.
NASA Answer: 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...
The primary mission was "to perform a manned lunar landing and return".
Usually the number of crew members of the international space station should never be below three. However when the space shuttle docks with the ISS the number of crew members could be above 10. It all depends on the mission and the flight training schedule.
Like the name suggest, the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory detects gamma rays.
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.
No, no. Without air, you hear nothing, although without air, that is seldom your main concern.
They are currently on Expedition 22 I believe, but if you wanted to know how many shuttle or Soyuz flights there have been, you can look that up too.
It is named the International Space Station or ISS.
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...
Not very far. The International Space Station is in an orbit about 350 km (217 miles) above the earth's surface ... roughly the distance between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. The moon is about 1,100 times as far away, and the sun is about 425,000 times as far away.
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.

Answer . The white rock has Deoxys and a Eon ticket.
I believe that mars is close to 53 million miles away when in back of the earth as compared to the sun and the space station is about 220 miles above the earth so it would be pretty much 53 million miles away
You eat waffles like all food in space from a tube. its like yogurt, you pretty much drink it.
Food, water, air and a means to get back
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.
In 1986, the Soviet Union launched a space station into space. That is a place where astronauts can eat and sleep during their missions. Mir was supposed to orbit earth for five years, but with repairs it orbited earth for fifteen years. Mir was finally abandoned in 2001. It fell safely to the earth...
Sadly, you've decided not to share the list of choices that you'relooking at, so there's no way for anyone here to help you select the best choicefrom the list.
The first American space station, Skylab, fell to earth in 1979.
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 •...
Enter you location at the web site below and then select ISS - Visible Passes, and you will see all the times you can see the International Space Station at your location.
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.
It was actually assembled piece by piece in space. It was a difficult process, which is why it took so many years.
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).
Helium, oxygen, and hydrogen.
The First Orbiting Space Station was Salyut 1. The first crew was unable to dock, but the second crew stayed for 23 days, but died from exposer to the vacuum of space while undocking. The world's first space station was de-orbited 175 days after launch.
The international space station is still being built. The project should be completed by the end of 2011.
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
No. If a new mode of transport is not yet ready, American astronauts will catch a ride with other space agencies such as in Russia or Japan. Eventually we will have a new transport vehicle. The international space station is just that...'international' and it is not uncommon for one agencies...
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
Mir weighed 250 metric tons (tonnes).
They, the international community, pushed their contributions up into space and docked with the space station. This is a science vessel that multiple nations have added to. It will always be a multi nation venture.
It got easier to retrieve, fix and launch satellites and it also help unloading and loading space shuttle
Peggy Whitson is currently nearing the end of her term as commander of the International Space Station.
! How is the Space Station Cooled? Well everything we put into space we take with us. Even Air. Air is filtered through an Air Conditioning unit on the I.S.S probably similar to one on a home or Apt complex.
The Space Station doesn't form holes in the Ozone. Pollution on Planet Earth does that.
