Learn About Working in the International Space Station Eight crew members can live comfortably on board the International Space Station. The astronaut’s private quarters are equipped with computers, VCR’s and telecommunications to earth. Each astronaut can live here from three to six months at a time. The habitation module has backed through man shell facilities, health maintenance center and a fully equipped galley with all the conveniences armed except here there is no gravity. Scientists in the laboratory module can perform experiments not possible on earth. The microgravity of space allows astronauts to grow perfect crystals and produce chemicals with an unprecedented level of purity. They experiment with robotics, electronics, ceramics, plants and human cells. Research aimed for their advance technology for new product. An important fission of outer space station is earth observation. The Luna’s blue horizon is air atmosphere. It seems so fragile if it shields all living things. From orbit 250 miles above the earth the hand planet is perceived as a delicate living organism that needs to be protected through international cooperation. The international space station external payloads are attached to a trust thrushes 500 feet long. Instruments are trained in space as well as earth. Information gathered in house and research in Astronomy, Oceanography, Geology and Meteorology. Changing the way we understand our world and our solar system, space shuttles are a welcome sight. They bring the personnel and equipment that keeps the station running. The space station itself begins in the cargo bay. Twenty-eight missions carry pressurized modules for the United States and their international partners. The shuttle brings thrust branches, solar arrays and experiments all to be assembled in space. In the late 1990’s one’s the station was operational a new era began. Now if we can live and work in space it’s easy to imagine life on the moon or maybe even Mars.
