Archive: Science Update: Countdown to ISS 20, October 15, 2020

ISSA celelebration of the 20th Anniversary of continuous human presence in space.

On October 31, 2000, the Expedition 1 crew of William Shepherd (NASA), Yuri Gidzenko (Roscosmos), and Sergei Krikalev (Roscosmos) launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, bound for the International Space Station (ISS). As NASA celebrates 20 years of continuous human presence aboard the ISS in 2020, this partially U.S.-designated National Laboratory facilitates groundbreaking research in science, engineering and technology.

With the dawn of its Commercial Crew Program (CCP), NASA is now able to expand the ISS’s research capabilities towards achieving the twin goals of sending humans further into space than ever before and improving life down here on Earth. The ISS also provides a unique platform from which to inspire the next generation of explorers: the NASA Artemis generation.

Note: The presenter had five videos planned for the presentation. Due to technical difficulties, one of the videos was not played, thus it is not included in the recording. Below are the five videos...enjoy!
