The International Space Station
Transcript of The International Space Station
The International Space Station (I.S.S.) is a large spacecraft that orbits around Earth. It's a home where astronauts live.
The space station is also a science lab.Many countries worked together to build it. They also work together to use it.
The space station is made up of many pieces. The space station was put together in space by astronauts.The space station's orbit is about 220 miles above Earth. NASA uses the station to learn about living and working in space. These lessons will help NASA explore space.

The crew of the I.S.S. eats three meals a day just like they would on Earth. They don't have a refrigerator so they can't bring any foods that have to be refrigerated. Cupboards on the I.S.S. have dried food and juice. To eat the food or drink the juice the astronauts have to add water to it. The astronauts have a supply of water to use when needed.
Food On The I.S.S.
How Old Is the I.S.S.?
The first piece of the I.S.S. was launched into space by a Russian rocket in 1998. More pieces have been added after that. Two years later the space station was ready for people. The first crew arrived in October of 2000. People have lived up in the space station ever since. More pieces have been added over time. NASA and its partners around the world finished the I.S.S. in 2011.

There are currently 6 people in space and their names are:1. Oleg Kotov; Soyuz commander, 41 days in space, from France. 2. Mike Hopkins; flight engineer, from America. 3. Sergey Ryanzanskiy; from France. 4. Fyodor Yurchikin;comander,161 days in space,from France. 5.Kren Nyberg;flight engineer, 161 days in space, from America. 6.Luca Parmitano;flight engineer,161 days in space, Mexico.
How do astronauts feel weightlessness?
The answer is that they are always falling!
If you sky dive, you will feel weightless until you pull your
chute; because it starts pushing you up.

Astronauts use tethers in space to keep from floating off.
The I.S.S. is as big inside as a house with five bedrooms. It has two bathrooms, a gymnasium, and a big bay window. Six people are able to live there. It weighs almost a million pounds. It is big enough to cover a football field including the end zones. It has science labs from the U.S, Russia, Japan, and Europe.

Science Experiments on the I.S.S
The I.S.S. is a really cool science lab. It has conducted research in biology, earth and space science, physical science , and human research.

What Is The International Space Station and What Is It's Purpose?
Why Is the I.S.S. Important?
The space station has made it possible for people to have an ongoing presence in space. Human beings have been living in space every day since the first crew arrived. The space station's laboratories allow crew members to do research that could not be done anywhere else. This scientific research benefits people on Earth. Space research is even used in everyday life. NASA and its partners have learned how to keep a spacecraft working well. All of these lessons will be important for future space exploration.
NASA currently is working on a plan to explore other worlds. The space station is one of the first steps. NASA will use lessons learned on the space station to prepare for human missions that reach farther into space than ever before.
