    Description
    ISS (International Space Station) The International Space Station, or ISS for short, is still being built in space. Separate sections have been sent up by spacecraft. Once they are fixed together, the pieces make a place for people to live and work. The International Space Station (ISS) is a space station, or a habitable artificial satellite, in low Earth orbit. It is a modular structure whose first component was launched in 1998. Now the largest artificial body in orbit, it can often be seen at the appropriate time with the naked eye from Earth. The space shuttle delivers new supplies such as food, water, fuel, spare parts and air. Electricity used on the space station is made and stored in giant solar panels on the sides. The ISS is travelling, or orbiting, around the Earth all the time. It makes just over 15 orbits every day. Up to six astronauts can stay on the ISS at one time. They can stay in touch with their families on Earth using email and telephone. Space planeWhen the space shuttle comes back to Earth, it lands like a giant glider. It is the only reusable spacecraft
