A Unique Image of Space Station Сrossing in Front of the Sun
There’s no human-made object orbiting our planet bigger than the International Space Station. It speeds through space at 5 miles per second. The ISS is a real speed racer flying about 250 miles above Earth. And don’t forget – there’s a whole crew of astronauts in there! The station is shared by the space agencies of the United States, Canada, Europe, Russia, and Japan, hence the whole “international” thing.
