Solid human waste is compressed, stored and loaded onto the next shuttle or Progress supply craft. The Progress and its contents burn up during re-entry to the Earth's atmosphere. Shuttles return the waste to Earth. Urine is processed to become usable as water for drinking and washing.

Does a space station carry humans?

Yes, a space station will support humans. It does now; the International Space Station has a varying crew of from 3-5 people. Previous space stations such as the two Soviet Mir stations and the old NASA Skylab station all had human crews.

Who owns the internationanl space station?

This answer was taken from the website, ESA- International Space Staion...Human Spaceflight and Exploration The International Space Station is a Co-operational program between Europe, USA, Russia, Canada, And Japan for the joint development operation and utilisational of a permanently inhabited space station in low Earth Orbit. Legal framework defines the right and obligation of each of the countries and their jurisdiction and control with respect of their space station elements.


What Russian space station holds the record for the longest continuous human presence in space?

The Mir space station.


Where is located International Space Station?

The International Space Station (ISS) is a habitable, artificial satellite (space station) in low Earth orbit. The ISS follows the Salyut, Almaz, Cosmos, Skylab, and Mir space stations, as the 11th space station launched, not including the Genesis I and II prototypes. The ISS serves as a research laboratory that has a microgravity environment in which crews conduct experiments in many fields including biology, human biology, physics, astronomy and meteorology.


What are the advantages of the International Space Station?

The station offers an advantage over spacecrafts such as NASA's Space Shuttle because it is a long-term platform, in the space environment, allowing duration studies to be performed, both on specific experiments and on the human crews that operate them.


What are unmanned satellites?

Satellites without people. For the United States that's all space flights except the Suttle and International Space Station, both with depend on human beings.


What is the purpose of the ISS?

Crews of the International Space Station conduct experiments in human research, life science, physical science, and Earth observation.

Is there a satellite hotel in space?

Well, the crew of the International Space Station do live, eat, and sleep there. But it's no 'hotel', because they have to work there too, they get paid for staying there instead of the other way around, and they sure don't have Room Service. At the present time, there are no other human beings anywhere else in space, and no facilities capable of housing them, other than the International Space Station.


Does the international space station always have some in it at all times?

The International Space Station (ISS) has supported permanent human existence in space since late 2000. Typically crew members are on-orbit for 4 to six months at a time. A new crew shows up to take over ISS duties before the old crew returns to Earth.


Are there men and women living on the International Space Station?

The ISS is operated by Expedition crews of six astronauts and cosmonauts, with the station programme maintaining an uninterrupted human presence in space since the launch of Expedition 1 - October 13, 2000. It is scheduled to be completed in 2011.


How are space stations useful?

Space shuttles are very useful objects. Take the International Space Station: It was launched into space to help us learn more about space, so we could send a human further into space and (crazy idea!) so we can live in space. People are already living in space because of science.


What is the purpose for ISS?

The ISS is an Orbiting Laboratory 350km above earth. It is used by several Space Agencies. The International Space Station is used for experiments conducted in a microgravity environment. It also acts as a satellite. The ISS has many purposes in Human Space flight.


Why is the International Space Station important?

Because people all over the world can participate in space.The exploration of space is a human endeavour to benefit mankind not just an individual nation. Co-operation and participation by all nations is not just a good idea, it is a necessity.


What is the purpose if the International Space Station?

what is the purpose of the space station?The mission of the International Space Station is to enable long-term exploration of space and provide benefits to people on Earth.With six state-of-the-art laboratories, the Space Station will be the premiere research facility in space, four times larger and more capable than any previous space station. It is hoped that it will allow for advancements in medicine, technology and science. For example, studies in micro and hyper gravity will help researchers better understand its effects on humans and offer insight into how the human body works. Growing protein crystals in a space environment can help scientists create better treatment for numerous diseases that currently have no cure. In addition, the laboratories on the Space Station will allow for innovative space research projects to improve our understanding of the Earth's environment and the universe in which we live.The Space Station will also serve as the gateway to new frontiers in human space exploration, a place where we can learn how to live and work "off planet." It will allow for the study of long-term effects of weightlessness on the human body and as a test bed to understand what adjustments need to be made to current methods before astronauts are sent to Mars and beyond. In addition, it will allow for critical research in fluids, combustion, life support systems and the radiation environment, which is needed for future human space exploration.


Are there human beings outside of Earth?

No one knows for sure if life exists outside of the planet Earth. There are some human beings outside of the planet Earth on the International Space Station which is in orbit about 250 miles above the planet.


What was the space station with longest human space occupation?

Mir: 5 September 1989 - 28 August 1999


Is there need of gravity on mars for human life?

Gravity isn't necessary for human life, as we can see on the International Space Station, where crew members spend months with no gravity at all. But even if gravity were absolutely essential, that would not be a problem on Mars, which has plenty of it.


How do you dispose of a human?

When was the last time that there was no human in space?

The International Space Station (ISS) marked its 10th anniversary of continuous human occupation on Nov. 2, 2010. HOWEVER, I do not know if there was an overlapping of the beginning of the ISS occupation with that of MIR (the Soviet space station). So the answer I can give is at least 10 years and 28 days! Human Beings on earth are also in space, as earth is not outside space that is the cosmos. So, after the evolution of human beings, the space is having humans all the time. So, the last time space was without humans is before the first humans came on to earth. OK, leaving out the semantics of 'space' in the answer above, the MIR de-orbited in March 2001, so the answer is from Oct 31 2000 (the launch of the Russian Soyuz to dock with the ISS) and counting.


Why was the Apollo-Soyuz Mission important?

It was the first international human space mission.


What is a space shuttle what does it do?

A space shuttle is a reusable launch and orbital spacecraft. It was designed by NASA for human space flight. The space shuttle takes humans into space. It also can be used to deploy satellites, probes, additions to the space station, and parts used to work on the space station. The space shuttle has also been used to conduct experiments in space.

In the year 3000 will people live in space?

There are already people living in space, in the International Space Station, even as I type. No one can possibly know what the human race will be doing (or even if it will still exist) in the year 3000. It is hard enough to make a meaningful prediction about the year 2010, which will be arriving in a few months.
