MILESTONE AND THE ISS
The International Space Station was launched November 20, 1998 through a joint venture between NASA and the Russian Space Agency. The goal was to create a living, orbiting microgravity laboratory in orbit.
ISS has been permanently occupied for over 15 years
On May 16, 2016, the ISS reached a milestone after completing 100,000 orbits around the Earth. That is a distance of more than 2.6 billion miles, a distance equivalent to nearly 10 round trips between Earth and Mars. http://earthsky.org/space/celebrating…
