  • Space Station
    472 words
    Atlantis Blasts Off With Science Lab Space shuttle Atlantis blasted off Wednesday with the most expensive and pivotal piece of the international space station: a $1.4 billion science laboratory. Atlantis and its crew of five soared into a clear sky at 6: 00 p. m., with a rising full moon in the background and the setting sun turning the exhaust trail a beautiful gold and peach. The plume cast a rainbow-like shadow that seemed to stretch all the way to the moon. The future of the space station, A...
  • International Space Station The International Space Station

    The International Space Station The International Space Station is the doorway to the future of mankind and the world as it is known. The scientific and medical discoveries that will be made on the station could create billions of dollars annually. A plan like this, arranged to benefit the whole world economy, should sound like a good idea to every person, but some believe that the ISS is too risky, too ineffective, or too costly to create. Whether or not the space station is worth the money, ti...
  • Figure 3 Since The Entire Station
    803 words
    The International Space Station will be the size of a city block and one of the brightest objects in the sky. The work and expense will be shared by 16 nations; it will be dangerous and expensive. This is the largest peacetime engineering project in history. The international space station will orbit the Earth every 90 minutes. Its permanent population will be six or seven at a time. It will have solar wings and radiators spanning 356 feet and a width will be 262 feet. The station will have a ma...
  • Canadian Contribution To The International Space Station
    908 words
    CanadarmAlthough Canada has been involved with the space race since the beginning, nothing has made our national pride glow like watching the space shuttles and seeing the big letters CANADA written across the Canadarm. The Canadarm was fist launched into space on November 13, 1981 as part of Columbia. During that mission, the Canadarm successfully flexed its muscles and secured its position in the future of space travel. It was developed by Spar Aerospace with the National Research Council and ...
  • Space Stations The Astronauts Work
    1,372 words
    My report is on the human body in space. There are many things that come into planning a space launch. For example, the astronauts that venture into space are affected by the complete lack of gravity. Now to me and you this seems like fun but to the people who spend large amounts of time in space or even the people who easily become motion sick, this is a terrible way to live for weeks at a time. You see when you turn off gravity completely your mind cannot determine which way is down. If your m...
  • Main Supplier Of The International Space Station
    2,713 words
    International Space Station The International Space Station, a worldwide project, is the next goal in a quickly growing space frontier. The station will be the first and next step towards researching the vast unknown world of outer space. What will be learned by this station? NASA has only the highest hopes that with the newest advancements in technology up in space, the fundamental physical, chemical, and biological processes can be examined with the absence of gravity, because of the space sta...
  • New Canadarm To The International Space Stations

    Canadarm 2 By: Daniel ZielinskiCanadarm 2 The Canadarm 2 is a very important contribution from Canada, to the international Space station. Its complex design allows it to move through out the international space station and supply the station with useful tasks.

On April 2001 the Endeavour was caring much more then just the Canadarm, it was caring the crew who would install the new Canadarm to the in...
  • Work On The Mir Space Station
    442 words
    Docking With Mir Last year something amazing took place, but it wasn't in a laboratory. Itwasn't under the ocean, and it wasn't on the land. It was in space. The docking of the United States's Space Shuttle Atlantis and the Russian Space Station Mir was an important step towards international cooperation in space. This is not the first time the U.S. has been in contact with Russia in space matters. In 1965, an American Apollo capsule and a Russian Soyuz module were locked in orbital tango 245 mi...
  • Von Braun A Space Station
    924 words
    Is A Space Station Finally "the next logical Step" If America plans to continue its space exploration program, the question that must be asked next is: "Where do we go from here" America has made major strides in space exploration in this century. We have built enormous rockets that can carry three men and their supplies to the moon and back. We have mastered the physics that are involved in shooting a rocket out of our atmosphere and bringing the return capsule back again. The next step in the ...
  • Data From Stations
    1,013 words
    Reason for design Data transfer over cable is a very important aspect of today's communication devices. Most cables used for data transfer in 1997 were used only for television purposes, and the direction of data flow was downstream, or from the head-end to the station. If this setup could be altered, then cables could also be used to receive data from stations, or upstream flow. In order for data to be transferable (able to go upstream as well as downstream), the cable must be upgraded to a com...
  • Space Station And People
    1,263 words
    Space exploration has always been intriguing to me. Ever since I was a kid, I have wanted to go to space. The thought of being weightless and able to float around is mind boggling. I love to watch the videos of astronauts eating. They can eat the food from the air. It just floats there. It is so weird to think about. Space exploration is much more than fun and games though. We do not know nearly anything about our universe, or even our galaxy. What is a black hole? What happens to plants at zero...
