The International Space Station is an orbiting laboratory and construction site that synthesizes the scientific expertise of 16 nations to maintain a permanent human outpost in space. While floating some 240 miles (390 kilometers) above Earth's surface, the space station has hosted a rotating international crew since November 2000. Astronauts and supplies are ferried by the U.S. space shuttles and the Russian Soyuz and Progress spacecraft. Astronauts who reach the facility aboard one of these missions typically live and work in orbit for about six months.
Simply by spending time in orbit, astronauts reveal much more about how humans can live and work in space. Crews have learned the difficulties of diet, in a world in which their sense of taste is decreased, and of getting a good night's sleep while secured to a non-floating object.
But the crew is also occupied with a full suite of scientific experiments, the ongoing improvement and construction of the station, and a rigorous regime of physical training. Astronauts must exercise for two hours each day to counteract the detrimental effects of low gravity on the body's skeleton and circulatory system.
The station has been under construction since November of 1998. In that year the first piece of its structure, the Zarya Control Module, was launched into orbit with a Russian Proton rocket. In 2008, the two-billion-dollar science lab Columbus was added to the station, increasing the structure to eight rooms.
The floating facility's design features a series of cylinder modules attached to a larger truss of a dozen segments. The Zarya Module is mainly used for storage and external fuel tanks, while the Zvezda Service Module houses the crew's living quarters and the station's many life-supporting systems. The space station is powered by solar panels and cooled by loops that radiate heat away from the modules. The station's Destiny laboratory functions as a unique floating facility for tests of materials, technologies, and much more. The Columbus lab was designed to house experiments in life sciences, fluid physics, and other fields.
Docking ports allow the station to be visited by a growing variety of spacecraft, and the Quest Airlock enables access for the frequent spacewalks essential to the facility's continuing construction.
Canadarm2 is another important feature of the space station. This Canadian-built apparatus is a large, remote-controlled space arm that functions as a crane and can be utilized for a wide variety of tasks.
The International Space Station may be completed by the end of this decade. When construction is finished, six crew members will be able to live and work in a space larger than a typical five-bedroom house.
You guys are still using machines with wings and rockets to move from place to place?
WoW how sad you humans are! You think you are in the age of modern civilization, but little do you know that you are cave man in comparison to galactic civilizations.
Make a video about the USS enterprise and captain Kirk and all of the manpower it took to create that pestle in order to carry the starship enterprise crew deep into space.....
If you're gonna make fake space videos
I can wait until they put out the documentary showing them putting it together from start to finish.... real film.... you know they filmed it.
For safety, to learn, to document.... the greatest structure ever built.... I’m sure they only use CGI because It takes time to get all that film developed and spliced.... Boy I’m excited.... not even watching all the cartoons n cgi on this documentary..... I’m waiting for the real stuff..... I’ve been waiting 20 yrs... it better be really really good....
very nice video but the animations (although correctly explained in audio) show it incorrect in the screen. For example the thrusters to stay in space (to prevent falling back). When you want to prevent falling back you need to accelerate forward to enlarge your orbital ellipse and not fire the thrusters downwards.
Also the gyroscopes on the ISS do not keep the solar panals aligned to the sun. They keep the ISS aligned to the earth so that the bottom of the ISS always faces down. This is needed for the communications array and a lot of other systems. The solar panals rotate completely on there own to face the sun.
Love watching the ISS, there are 3 passes this week. 2 for 6mins another for 5 mins, so guess where I will be. Mans accomplishments are absolutely amazing to me, given determination, we can do anything. Look in awe, from the pyramids of Egypt, to the moon landings. What is next.
Ahhhh lol, this is a crock of shit... A normal mega structures tv show, will show real structures... But in this instance they use cgi all the way through the so called documentary. Total fairy-tale....
It's sooo funny... how long has this so called space station been in space?? Not one accident or piece of space debris hits it, amazing... Not one seal failure. Not one docking failure. Success everywhere.... total bullshit.
And before any troll tries a nonsensical reply to this post, forget it... unless you can point me to some real imagery of the so called space station and some real imagery of the earth, taken from the space station or if you can show me a video, that shows us the hidden fourth wall... don't bother..
Quite old documentary but it's still good! Impressive how transforms sweat and urine in air! And it's a shame that not show the little atitude mini motors of Russian space suit that possibles moves around space station without unbelical cable! I don't have sure with it exists at thant time, but today in Americans and Russian's suit it's used something like RCS thrusters! It's very cozy little beutiful thing as some Kerbal's description would say! Well, it's amazing how complex and how humans can make something incrediable when they want! Thank you Wisdon Land to this great up load! :)) :D
Someone proved space by telling that we use cell phones because of satellites above us. Lol!! How stupid would you be saying smth like that? If there are satellites in space why they put antennas in high places ( mountain, towers etc) A satellite is like an arrow and its signal could catch our phone where ever we are or there woudn't be for the antennas to be high cause they could send the signal there. There are hundreds thousand antennas over the world and underseas and underground cables that do their job for our communication internet and telephone. Thanks for convincing me again that Earth is Flat!!!! This video is SciFi movie.
I doubt it unless we can find clean ways to power everything and people hate each other less. The big powers don't hate each other like long ago but the middle east and asia is starting to bite at each other.
When Albert Einstein was asked what it felt like to be the smartest man in the world he replied, "I don't know. You would have to ask Nicola Tesla that question." And it was Nicola Tesla who said "Gravity is a Theory that cannot be proven because it doesn't exist."
Where is an actual photo of the whole earth from the moon or iss ? where is the video of the earth spinning 1000 plus miles per hour at the equator ? Enough time and money has been granted for this FAILURE to prove what shape the earth is . All the globe blind faith is from the tooth fairy people . I want my money back . The moon landings are a fraud without the proof of an actual photo like the ones of the moon from earth , clear with the rover vividly seen as some say exist , this clear in other words . WAITING ....
The earth is MASSIVE!!!!! Why do flat earthers expect to see it spinning like a merry go round? It takes 24 hours to make a full rotation. FAILURE to prove what shape the earth is? We knew it was a sphere thousands of years ago bruh. Time to crack open some educational books, you've spent too much time on youtube conspiracy videos LOL
I want to know why there is no actual video of these 'mega structures' being mega constructed .. LIVE, NOT CG.
Not lil snippets .. a FULL length documentary of the entire construction
also .. how strong is the 'vacuum' of 'space' ?
I'm sure the process was broadcast live on the NASA TV satellite channel, as almost all shuttle missions were. Now, there are the post-mission highlight videos, narrated by the crews themselves, covering all the crucial points, and together much longer than any documentary.
A vacuum has no force of its own. In every case it is the pressurized environment that contains the force. In the case of the ISS, that pressure is 14.7psi inside.
Can someone explain to me, how something can flying above earth, and don't fall down? If You will say, there is no gravity, what can pull down, to make it fall, I have question: If there is no gravity, should be just able to go far deep in to the space? If earth can't pull this down, how can hold it in one unchanged distance from earth?
amazing documentary. great watch. very interesting. its strange how the thing every single kid out there wanted to be when they grew up and the most impressive feat of mankind has so few views on youtube..
all i see here is comments about how stupid flat earthers are, and how can they possibly believe it... simple. they dont.
i dont see a single claim in these comments that the earth is flat, and if there is, they are most likely just trolling. im sure there are some (a very small amount) of people out there who do believe the earth is flat. but its not worth mentioning. i think people who fall for the trolls have barely any more intelligence than flat earthers themselves....
look at facts and proofs.... not just talking.... and some holywood videos.....
logic things..... they say the earth has a dimension , and is round.... whit our eyes , we can see that is not true..., and many things... but only proof they have that the earth is round are some photoshoop photos and what they sayd.... but everybody belive them, because they are the gov, they don't lie... :)))) wake up poor sheeps
why would they need to make new communication in the 70's when the trip to the moon is much,much farther and happen in the late 60's and the communication from what we can hear was really good,just wanted to point out that weird hole in the story....thought it was weird that was in this doc.
Because the Moon is so far away you can cover it with just three ground station, while satellite in low Earth orbit gets flying at orbital speed can be seen only for short time from one point on the ground.
Let us start a solar system camera network(SSCN) and booster satellites broadcast continued videos of the planets. Just the most basic cinema, 7 mini satellites shot from mother pod. If I'm throwing a billion on islands, vacations, personal armies, ships, etc., I would do this for the fun of it.
Why would anybody in their right mind want to live space. It seems like the most uncomfortable experience a human can experience not to mention all the life threatening dangers that they are constantly surrounded by like space rocks and radiation. It must be the shit smelliest place to have to occupy; b.o. feet, ass, breath, gas..how does bacteria behave in zero gravity and how is all the human funk dissipated?
no we do not need to colonize any other planet other than the Earth, and we will not
colonize Mars in my lifetime or any other, Elon Musk is about to lose control of Tesla
now this is trying to tell me that 'Space X' will colonize Mars??? Blue Origin is not as
Successful as Space X is, so that theory is out the window. this is all junk science.
DEAR WORLD WHEN CAN WE ALL CHIP IN TO BUILD OUR SHARE OF THIS SPACE STATION BECAUSE ITS STARTING TO LOOK A LITTLE PATHETIC
P.S DOES ANYONE HAVE A DRONE THEY THINK CAN REACH 240 MILES HIGH \ 390 KILOMETERS HIGH ???
JUST JUST SAYING
So far it looks like Republicans May lose the House. We ALL HAVE TO VOTE FOR Consevnatives, Dims are going to ban the 2nd Amendment! After everything that the Dims messed up they are looking at getting another chance to mess it up even worse! SO GO OULT AND VOTJE IN NOVEMBER!
why is there NO nasa footage of the sun, or stars in space ? surely outside the stratosphere and van allen belt it'd be a clearer view ? just sayin' !! PS if anyone has a link that shows the stars, or sun, please supply ? Im intrigued - have been since original moon landings.....
The Hubble Space telescope shows plenty of stars. However, most other cameras in space are pointed at brighter objects. A camera has an exposure time, the length of time the shutter stays open. The longer the exposure, the more light gets received. To image a faint object, like a star, the exposure time needs to be long to collect enough light. If the object is bright, it only needs a short exposure time. A long exposure would leave it whited out and blurry.
So, you can either have a picture of the moon's surface, or the stars, not both in the same picture. You could always take two pictures with different exposures and composite together, but according to flattards, that makes them fake and CGI.
Also, the Van Allen belts are not visible particles or light and therefore do not interfere with vision.
The van allen radiation belts stop anyone from leaving low earth orbit, nothing man made can travel through it. Man never went to the moon, its scientifically impossible because of those pesky belts that were found by that irksome scientist call Mr Van Allen.... Flat earthers may be a bit off but even they can work that little dilemma out!
I thought America and Russia are enemies ! But they seem to work very well together like best friends, when it comes to the highest possible technologies ! Hmmm, Interesting stuff don't you think guys...
