ISS

What do you want to know about the International Space Station (ISS)? What DON'T you want to know?! With its solar panel arrays, it's the size of a football field. 6 people can live in it at one time. It orbits the Earth 16 times in one day - that's 16 sunrises and sunsets every 24 hours! 6 spaceships can be docked at it at one time. It took 10 years and 30 missions to complete its assembly. WOW. But maybe the most trivial thing to know is that the ISS has its own slogan too! 

This badge series was created by Jennifer German, NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador to Ann Arbor, with help from her daughter Amber.

Find the Utube video of Sunita Williams returning to Earth with two others. I recommend turning on closed captioning. The video I found was a reporter with an accent and the two names are said very quickly at the beginning. The closed captioning will help you get the correct names and spelling. Make sure you get the two who returned with her, not who they bid farewell to.

If you are on the page for the Youtube video that is named "Departing Space Station Commander Provides Tour of Orbital Laboratory" and was posted by NASA itself on Nov. 19, 2012, you can find the names by scrolling down a little and reading the video's description.

I have been getting the "Spot the Station" emails for years and get out to watch the Station at least a few times a year. I learned a lot from this badge. Thank you!
