How High They Go
The International Space Station goes around the Earth
at 17,500 mph. It orbits Earth once every 92 minutes.
During every orbit the astronauts get about 46 min of
light and 46 min of darkness. They will see the sun will
rise and set 16 times a day.
Parts of the space station
There are 5 major parts on

Growing Plants In Space
Scientists grow plants on the ISS to learn
about how plants grow in space. We hope
that someday we might be able to live away
from the Earth. We would need a way to feed
How Astronauts Eat
Exercising In Space. Astronauts live in zero
gravity, so their bones
and muscles become
weak over time. They
work out on a special
exercise bike and
treadmill to build up
their muscles and
bones. They also lift
How astronauts sleep
The crewmembers aboard the ISS sleep while
