How big is the International Space Station?
The dimensions of the completed ISS research facility will be approximately 356 feet (109 meters) by 240 feet (73 meters), or slightly larger than a football field. When completed, the ISS will weigh around 450 tons (408,000 kg), or 450 times the weight of an average car. The ISS is so large that it is visible to the naked eye from the ground.
Is there a limit to the size of the ISS?
Technically… there’s no limit to its size. The International Space Station is the only large-scale construction we’ve ever conducted in space thus far, and in such an environment things are much more different there than on Earth.
What happens inside the International Space Station?
Within the ISS is a laboratory in which scientists conduct daily experiments, including studies on the effects of long-term space exposure on the human body. Plants are grown in the greenhouses of the station’s laboratory to study their development in low gravity settings. There is also a gym, a sleep station and a robotic workstation.
Who owns the International Space Station (ISS)?
It is a multinational collaborative project involving five participating space agencies: NASA (United States), Roscosmos (Russia), JAXA (Japan), ESA (Europe), and CSA (Canada). The ownership and use of the space station is established by intergovernmental treaties and agreements.
