The space station orbits the Earth once every 91 minutes.
It is traveling at a speed of 27,744 km/h (17,239 miles/hour).
At that speed, its angular velocity counteracts the gravitational pull of the Earth, so it maintains its altitude.
The space station orbits the Earth in a direction opposite to the Earth's rotation. Its orbit is almost circular, but tilted 51.6 degrees, relative to the equator.
On each orbit, it spends half of its time over the northern hemisphere and half over the Southern Hemisphere.
Over the course of many orbits, the space station will pass over most of the inhabited parts of the Earth.
Hope you like it!
The International Space Station was assembled in space and is designed to stay there. It is meant as a place of research and as a place for astronauts to stay in space. A space shuttle is a vehicle that can lauch from Earth into space and then return, something a space station cannot do. Space shuttles transport people and equipment to and from space.
The average stay for an astronaut on a space station is six months.
yes there is it is a space station that rich people stay in. 1 night=1000 $
False. The astronaut will stay in orbit with the space station on less some force acts on him or her.
A space shuttle is the ship in which theastronauts use to get to the space station The space station is where the astronauts typically go to refuel and to stay when they r on a long mission.
The international space station is somewhere in space, and hence the name International Space Station it is there for the whole world to use, engineer's, and scientists stay out there for long term research projects that can't be conducted on Earth.
The record for the longest stay on the International Space Station is held by a Russian cosmonaut. Sergei Avdeyev earned the record by staying aboard for just over 747 days.
it is advantageous for astronauts to live on a space station rather a space shuttle because a space station allow astronauts to stay and work extended time . A space shuttle is a space craft to transport astronauts , satellites, and other materials to and from space.
As you may know already there is not much gravity in space maybe Evan none. So in order for something as large as the space station it stays in space by the gravitational pull form Earth I guess?
Astronauts stay on the ISS for 6 or more months.Generally, it is for 6 or more months.
Stationary mean "not moving" so it must mean the the position is not moving or stay the same place.
There is 0 gravity in space, so the rings stay in place.
If you are offered a place but no funding you can choose to defer for a year
The Earth is moving but the sun's gravitational pull keeps the earth in place.
They always travel, they can only breathe when moving.
That means that it is moving - that it doesn't stay in the same place.
Well one the walls of a space station in some rooms there is a sleeping bag type bed. Since there is no gravity people can sleep vertical. To stay in the sleeping bag hunan are velcroed in.
Generally an astronaut or cosmonaut living aboard the International Space Station on a long duration space flight will stay for about 6 months.
the international space stations is somewhere in space and hence the name international space stations it is there for the whole world to use engineers and scientists stay out there for long term
no because some animals get paralysis cauze they just in one place, they stay in one place cauze they have no space to roam around!
It doesn't. The sun is moving at a huge speed through space as it orbits the Milky Way's centre.
no, they need to constantly be moving to have the water run through their gills to breathe...
The International Space Station is constantly circling the earth. It is in a state of freefall, meaning that it is literally "Falling" around the earth. Since the station falls at an angle relative to the ground, it will stay on a constant circular path around the earth, until some other force alters its path.
It would be the worst kind of fart ever:you couldn't deny it, you couldn't escape it and the smell would stay with you all the way back to the space station.
