Live on the ISS

  1. 1. All Aboard The ISS  By : Morgan, BreAnna, Hailey, and Charles
  2. 2. 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.
  3. 3. Parts of the space station  There are 5 major parts on the ISS they include  Solar Arrays  Science Lab  Command  The Habitat  The Docking Port
  4. 4. Daily schedule  8:00 to 10:00 am post - sleep  10:00 to 10:30 am planning and coordination  10:30 to 1:00 pm Exercise  1:00 to 2:00 lunch  2:00 to 2:30 daily systems operations (take care of the Station)  3:30 to 10:00 pm work on science and projects  10:00 pm to 12:00 am time off  12:00 to 8:30 am sleep
  5. 5. ROBOTIC ARM  Canada has made the ISS`s robotic arms.
  6. 6. How Astronauts Train Underwater  The astronauts train for being in space in a huge pool in Houston, Texas. Hundreds of people apply to be astronauts, but only a few are selected every two years.
  7. 7. How they get supplies  The ISS gets its supplies from a resupply spacecraft that comes from Earth.
  8. 8. Microgravity glove boxThe Microgravity Glove Box is used for experimenting in-side the International Space Station.
  9. 9. 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 ourselves.
  10. 10. How Astronauts Eat  Astronaut food is canned or Freeze- dried. This is because the ISS does not have a refrigerator.
  11. 11. 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 weights.
  12. 12. How astronauts sleep  The crewmembers aboard the ISS sleep while floating in microgravity. Astronauts attach a sleeping bags to the wall and sleep in that. Astronauts are scheduled for eight hours of sleep a day because every 90 minutes the sun sets.
  13. 13. What astronauts wear and how they clean up  In space astronauts wear comfortable clothes they change every three days.  They throw their clothes away that they have worn.  They use wipes (like baby wipes) to wash themselves.
