The International Space Station (ISS) is estimated to have cost around $150 billion. This includes development, construction, and ongoing maintenance expenses over a period of multiple decades. The majority of the funding for the ISS came from the United States, Russia, and other international partners.
The International Space Station (ISS) is being assembled in space rather than on Earth because it is a complex structure that needs to be launched into orbit. It is not possible to build it on Earth and then launch it into space in one piece due to its size and weight. Instead, it is being assembled piece by piece in space by multiple space agencies from different countries, using space shuttles and other spacecraft.
Most birds are attracted to bright colours, with different birds being attracted to different colours. Many like reds, yellows and oranges, and these are usually the colours of berries and of flowers which rely on birds for pollination. However some birds are attracted to blue.
b. A hub forwards data it receives to every device connected to the hub. It is possible for a network devices to pick up data intended for a different device. A switch eliminates this by only forwarding data packets to the correct device whenever possible
No, the location is constantly changing.
They stay in "space" for a (relatively) long time, allowing for long term studies of materials and human physiology in microgravity. These areas of research are essential for future deep space exploration. Space stations can also be used as testing platforms for new or experimental technologies used in space exploration. Finally, smaller ships can be assembled at space stations before launching to far-flung locations in space. Since space stations have already overcome the hardest part of the planet's gravity well, they serve as great stepping points to places like the Moon, Mars or beyond.
yes, the international space station was always called the ISS
The program that took astronauts to the moon was Apollo. It was not a space station.
It wasn't. It was built by and with the cooperation of several nations.
Yes the international space station is in the tropsphere
