The International Space Station A pair of space-walking astronauts left to safe confines of the International Space Station and its stone equipment for a new generation of cargo ships. They live the man station in the hands of control as in Houston on Moscow during the 4 ½ hour space walk. Video picture being deemed from space they come almost common place at least eh 21st century, this is a view of the International Space Station. The peer of astronauts floated out to waters on the food space walk in just over a month to carry out relatively mundane and housekeeping chores. They have replaced scientific equipment to study galactic space race and disconnect the electrical cable of a broken TV camera. The most important task though was to install laser reflectors and the antennas necessary for a new European cargo sheep. The six old reflectors were built in the late 1990’s and it has been an orbit since 2000. These new one’s will make it easier for the new automated transport vehicles or ATV’s to dock within two crew about the space station. it had to lift a man during this 41/2 hours space walk. Flood control is in Houston Texas and Moscow keep watch of the vacated outpost. Live video coverage of the astronauts was kept to a minimum preserve power for critical systems. Midway through the space walk communication was lost when the main US Radio link was accidentally turned off by flood controllers. They eventually activated the back up radio line sending commands through a Russian ground stations then got the main system working again. The space station is build as the largest and most complex international side to be projected history. It’s a state of the State of the Art laboratory complex in orbit. More than 4 times the size of Russia’s mere and with almost 60 times the electrical power for experiments. Late back in the United States the International Space Station draws upon the scientific and technological resources of 16 nations Canada, Japan, Russia and 11 nations of the European Space Agency as well as Brazil. It is hope that research of the stations 60 bar trees will lead to discover it in medicine, materials and fundamental Science that will benefit people all over the world.
