Cooperation in space

  1. 1. Sunday, September 7th , 2008 SPACE Cooperation in Space
  2. 2. Cooperation in Space  When people first started going into space, it was a competition.  The United States and Russia were in the middle of the Cold War with each other so both sides were very secretive about their space programs.  There was no cooperation.
  3. 3.  Since the end of the Cold War in 1989, things have changed.  Russia and the United States now work together and many other countries around the world participate in a cooperative space program.
  4. 4.  Animation  The biggest example of this new found cooperation between countries is the ISS, the International Space Station.
  5. 5.  Many countries have been involved with building the ISS and many more have been involved with running missions onboard the ISS.  Here are the countries involved:
  6. 6.  As you take a look at the countries involved and their contributions to the ISS, locate the countries on your world map and then COLOUR and LABEL them.
  7. 7. The United States – NASANational Aeronautics and Space Administration  Strength: 40 years of putting humans into space; deep funding pockets. Gives: $24.7 billion for Unity connector node, Spacehab cargo module, 300-foot truss (ISS backbone), lab module, joint airlock, propulsion module, cupola, solar arrays, X-38 crew return vehicle, habitation module, launches, astronauts.
  8. 8. Russia – RKA Roskosmos  Strength: 40 years of putting humans into space, master of space stations. Gives: Difficult to put a price tag on it, partly because much is U.S. funded, partly because of tough economic times in the country; Zarya control module; Zvezda service module (first living quarters); Soyuz return capsule; two docking compartments for Soyuz; universal docking module that includes living quarters, docking and stowage module; two research modules with solar arrays; launches and cosmonauts.
  9. 9. Canada – CSA Canadian Space Agency  Strength: Space robotics. Gives: $1.2 billion for 55-foot-long mobile robot Canadarm and smaller Canada Hand, mobile cart that moves along tracks on ISS backbone, astronauts.
  10. 10. Japan – NASDA National Space Development Agency of Japan  Strength: Potential for making ISS cheaper, better, faster. Gives: $3.1 billion for Kibo experiment cargo module, experiment racks, 32.5-foot robotic arm, external platform.
  11. 11. Brazil – INPE Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais  Strength: Nascent enthusiasm. Gives: $200 million for an outside moveable experiment pallet that's part of the program to EXpedite the PRocessing of Experiments to Space Station (EXPRESS).
  12. 12. Europe  Strength: In numbers. Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Gives: $3.83 billion for Columbus laboratory module, an automated transfer vehicle, two connector nodes, the electronic "brain" for Russia’s Zvezda module, European robotic arm, launches, astronauts. In addition, ESA is selling 30 percent of lab space to business.  European Space Agency - ESA  Belgium  Denmark  France  Germany  Italy  Netherlands  Norway  Spain  Sweden  Switzerland  United Kingdom
