The International Space Station
What is the International Space Station
Size and structure of the ISS
The ISS by the numbers
The crew members on the ISS have to be strapped to their beds at night so they don't float away while they sleep!
This is a picture of an astronaut on the ISS running on a zero gravity treadmill to help keep his body in shape while under the effects of zero gravity.

2. The International Space Station was actually built in space. It was not launched from Earth but its parts were. The parts were launched and then assembled in outer space, with the final touches being the docking of the ships onto the station.
Overall I really enjoyed this project and hope to continue to learn about the ISS and the possibilities of someone going into space.
