The International Space Station (ISS) is a habitable, artificial satellite in low Earth orbit. The ISS serves as a research laboratory that has a microgravity environment in which crews conduct experiments in many fields including biology, human biology, physics, astronomy and meteorology.
The station has a unique environment for the testing of the spacecraft systems that will be required for missions to the Moon and Mars. The station is expected to remain in operation until at least between 2020 or 2028.
A few weeks ago, the ISS take 600 photos of one of his orbit to pur planet. This is the result:
