Starting with a brief review of previous space stations, this lecture will provide an overview on how the ISS was built and supported, how it works, what it does, and how the crew lives. Since its inception in 1958, NASA has conducted space exploration and planetary missions benefiting people around the world through the expansion of our civilization’s horizons, the acquisition of knowledge, and the development of new technologies and applications that have provided amazing advances in the quality of human life. As United Kingdom’s own son Tim Peake, plans to embark on a historic journey to the ISS in 2015, it is timely to discuss how scientists from all over the world utilize the ISS facilities.
