In the International Space Station (ISS), located 400 km above the surface of Earth, experiments, research, and observations of the Earth, and other celestial objects, are conducted. The ISS challenges the harsh environment of space where humans could not survive under normal circumstances, and researchers, astronauts and operators on Earth around the world cooperate to keep it up and running. In addition to having a scale model of the ISS living quarters, this exhibit also introduces messages and research results from people involved with the ISS.
