    What is International Space Station?

    Internationally developed research facility in spacebeing assembled in Low Earth Orbit Has amicrogravity environment in which Astronautsconduct experiments in biology, humanbiology,

    physics, astronomy and meteorology

    Unique environment for the testing of the spacecraftsystems that will be required for missions to the

    Moon and Mars A complete home to the humans beyond the Earth

    Major Experiments include

    Effects of long-term space exposure on the human bodyUltrasound scans and diagnosis and treatment ofmedical conditions in space

    Study on near-weightless and microgravity environmenton the evolution, development, growth and internalprocesses of plants and animals Investigation ofSuperconductivity and the physics of fluids inmicrogravity

    Study of the efficiency of burning and control ofemissions and pollutants Study on cosmic rays, cosmicdust, antimatter and dark matter in the universe

    Power Supply & Communication in

    ISS The source of electrical power for the ISS is the sun Sunlight is

    converted into electricity by solar arrays. The Russian segmentof the station uses 28 volts DC Solar arrays are arranged as four

    pairs of wings, and each wing is capable of generating nearly

    32.8 kW of DC power Has rechargeable nickel-hydrogenbatteries working life of 6.5 years

    Communication Talking with the Ground NASA's MissionControl (Houston) => 60-foot radio antenna (New Mexico) =>Pair of Geostationary satellites => U.S. portion of the ISS/Spaceshuttle

    The ISS has two systems for communicating with the ground: S-band - voice, commands, telemetry and data files Ku-band (highbandwidth) - video and transfer of two-way data files
