Contexts > Rockets > Rockets and space International Space Station NASA The International Space Station (ISS) is the size of a rugby field. Astronauts live on board for up to 6 months at a time. Huge solar panels generate energy from the Sun. Altitude is 360 kilometres above the Earth’s surface. Orbital speed of kilometres per hour. It takes 90 minutes to go around the Earth once. Astronauts experience 16 day/night cycles every 24 hours! NASA © Copyright University of Waikato. All rights reserved. |
