• The International Space Station is the largest spacecraft ever built, with a main truss that is longer than a football field. It is currently home to six men (three Russians, two Americans and a Dutch astronaut) and flies 240 miles (390 kilometers) above Earth at a speed of about 17,500 mph (28,000 kph). At its brightest, the space station can outshine the planet Venus and be easily spotted with the unaided eye by skywatchers who know where to look.

Enjoy your posts …they are a delight 🙂
