  49. 50. Supplies and fuel are brought to the Station by the Russian Progress vehicle. Supplies are also brought up via the payload bay of the Shuttle in one of three Italian built Multi-Purpose Logistics Modules – Leonardo, Rafaello, and Donatello. Progress approaching station MPLM Progress Supplying the Station
  50. 51. “ Zvezda”, or the Service Module, serves as the Station’s crew quarters, providing a place for the astronauts to eat, live, rest, and conduct science experiments. Zvezda Living Quarters
  51. 52. Astronauts exit the Station using the Russian docking compartment, “Pirs”, and the Joint Airlock, “Quest”. Working Outside the Station Quest Pirs
  52. 53. During space walks astronauts are able to maneuver and assemble the Station’s massive elements with the help of the Canadian robotic arm system. Working Outside the Station Canadarm2
  53. 54. The Russian built Zarya, or functional cargo block (FGB) was the initial building block, control center, and propulsive power of the Station. Zarya Zarya
  54. 55. The Soyuz provides crew rotation and emergency evacuation Soyuz Soyuz
  55. 56. With six docking ports, “Unity” (or Node1) is the nexus of the U.S. segment connecting the lab, airlock, and solar array structure. Unity Unity
  56. 57. The Station’s main U.S. science facility is the home of four different types of racks, where ongoing experiments are performed and monitored by the crew. Research aboard the Station Destiny
  57. 58. The Solar Arrays are the main source of power for the Station. During the shadow phase, the Space Station relies on banks of nickel-hydrogen rechargeable batteries to provide a continuous power source Solar Arrays Solar Arrays
  58. 59. The Station's outstretched radiators are made of honey-comb aluminum panels. There are 14 panels, each measuring 6 by 10 feet for a total of 1680 square feet of ammonia-tubing-filled heat exchange area. Thermal Control Subsystem
  59. 60. Electrical powered attitude control provided by U.S. Control Moment Gyros. Service Module jets can also be used. CMGs The Shuttle and the Progress boosts the Station when docked. Progress Guidance, Navigation, Control, and Propulsion
  60. 61. The Space Station systems are controlled by nearly 4 million lines of software code, about half provided by the US in core computers (MDMS) and laptops and the balance from Russia and Canada controlling their systems. Still to be added are another 2.5 millions lines of code controlling the European and Japanese modules. Command data and Handling
  61. 62. Canadarm2 represents next-generation robotics. By flipping end-over-end between anchor points it can move around the ISS like an inchworm. With its seven joints, Canadarm2 is more maneuverable than its predecessor on the shuttle and even more agile than a human arm. Robotics
  62. 63. The ISS is advancing human and robotic space operations to new heights. To date astronauts have logged more than 483 hours of space walking activity, experimenting with tools and equipment. Human and Robotic Integration
  63. 64. Science Leads the Way Space Commerce test bed Inspiring the Next Generation Exploration of the Universe Space Engineering The ISS is a Springboard for Many Futures
  64. 65. IN SUMMARY: The International Space Station is critical to the continuation of space exploration. It is the only platform for learning how to live and work during longer missions in space. It's where we're learning how to combat the physiological effects of being in space for long periods of time and serves as a unique test bed for innovative technologies. O ur partnership with 15 other nations will aid international cooperation in the Vision for Space Exploration . As outlined, NASA intends to continue using the Space Shuttle with the goal of completing assembly of the Station by the end of the decade. We will continue conducting research on the Station to support space exploration goals, and to fulfill our commitments to our International Partners.
