Pictures were taken with the International Space Station (ISS):
1. The ISS’ large modules were delivered into orbit on a total of 42 flights – 37 US Space Shuttle launches and five Russian launches.
2. A total of six spacecraft can dock to the ISS at once.
3. The wingspan of the Space Station’s solar array measures 240ft or the equivalent of the Airbus A380.
4. A spacecraft launched from Earth can arrive at the Space Station in as little as six hours.
5. There are about 350,000 sensors on the ISS, monitoring the crews’ health.
Nasa has been developing a commercial project to launch rockets with a site for a long time. I think it will be very interesting.
