The International Space Station

“The International Space Station (ISS) is a unique scientific platform that enables researchers from all over the world to put their talents to work on innovative experiments that could not be done anywhere else. Although each space station partner has distinct agency goals for station research, each partner shares a unified goal to extend the resulting knowledge for the betterment of humanity. Through advancing the state of scientific knowledge of our planet, looking after our health, developing advanced technologies and providing a space platform that inspires and educates the science and technology leaders of tomorrow, the benefits of the ISS will drive the legacy of the space station as its research strengthens economies and enhances the quality of life here on Earth for all people.” -- NASA

20 Years of Human Presence

On November 2, 2000, a new page was turned in the history of Space, when the first permanent crew arrived at the International Space Station. The Expedition 1 crew, composed of Space Station commander Bill Shepherd (US), Soyuz commander Yuri Gidzenko (Russia) and flight engineer Sergei Krikalev (Russia), arrived at the Station two days after launching from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

The Expedition 1 crew’s arrival kicked off what is now twenty years of continuous human presence on the ISS. Some 220 people from 17 countries have since visited the ISS over the past twenty years.
