The ISS circles the earth at regular intervals. Made by a consortium of 15 countries and 5 space organizations, the ISS has as of now planned development costs surpassing $60 billion. The possible cost of the space station and its thought about developments could surpass $1 trillion, by which point it could turn into an environment for up to one million off-planet tenants. 



The ISS gives a stage to direct logical research. Little unmanned rocket can give stages to zero gravity and introduction to space, yet space stations offer a long haul condition where studies can be performed conceivably for a considerable length of time, joined with prepared access by human analysts over periods that surpass the capacities of kept an eye on shuttle. 

The ISS fills in as a microgravity and space condition look into research facility in which group individuals lead tests in science, human science, material science, stargazing, meteorology, and different fields 

The International Space Station (ISS) is a space station, or a livable simulated satellite, in low Earth circle. Its first part propelled into space in 1998, and the ISS is currently the biggest human-influenced body in low Earth to circle and can regularly be seen with the stripped eye from Earth. 

The station is suited for the testing of shuttle frameworks and gear required for missions to the Moon and Mars. 

The ISS team gives chances to understudies on Earth by running understudy created tests, making instructive showings, considering understudy cooperation in classroom renditions of ISS tests, and specifically captivating understudies utilizing radio, videolink and email. ESA offers an extensive variety of free instructing materials that can be downloaded for use in classrooms. In one lesson, understudies can explore a 3-D model of the inside and outside of the ISS, and face unconstrained difficulties to unravel progressively.
