SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY AND DRAMATIC VIEWS OF EARTH;
ALL IN A DAYS WORK ON THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION
From designing new materials to studying the Earth, the crew of the International Space Station continues its work high above our planet.
Scientists from around the world have conducted several thousand hours of research since crews took up permanent residence on the orbiting laboratory in November 2000.
Earlier this month the Space Station provided dramatic images of hurricane Claudette as the storm moved into Texas.
Discoveries and observations from the Space Station help improve the quality of life on Earth.
