The International Space Station: A Laboratory in Space
We’re doing science at 17,500 miles per hour! The International Space Station is a state-of-the-art microgravity laboratory that is unlocking discoveries not possible on Earth, and helping us push farther into deep space. We’re testing technologies that are critical to our return to the Moon and great leap to Mars. Station research has contributed to medical and social benefits on our home planet, allowing us to find new ways to combat disease back on Earth, and develop technologies to deliver clean water to remote communities in need. We’re inspiring future generations, from a platform that is one of the largest international collaborations of our time.
