Hey guys!

This week’s issue is all about the super fascinating space above, called er space. So we thought we’d share with you some brain busting facts about the that’s chillin’ in a galaxy not so far away.

Did you know?

  • The ISS was launched on November 2, 2000 and since then, it has been visited by 204 people.

  • The ISS has more room than a 6 bedroom house! It has 2 bathrooms and even has a gym. But it doesn’t have a shower- eeww!

  • Weighing in at 924, 739 pounds, The ISS is about the size of a U.S football field!

  • Crews on board the ISS have to take special care when it comes to meal time. Most of their food comes in sealed, plastic bags which they drink from a straw and any fresh food has to be delivered from Earth. 

  • Wanna watch the ISS from Earth? Make sure you sign up to NASA’s ‘Spot the Station’ website where you’ll be notified when the station is going over your very own hometown!
