Space, Sky is divine… to which ancient man was very very fascinated. The unlimited expanse in which everything is located and today’s man has caught over it. International Space station, a station which completed man’s dream to live in space..!
I always had a cherished desire to fly in the sky……
But today I at least have opportunity to see the sons of Earth in the space…
The International Space Station (ISS) is a joint project of five space agencies: the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (United States), the Russian Federal Space Agency (Russian Federation), the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (Japan), the Canadian Space Agency (Canada) and the European Space Agency (Europe). It is serviced primarily by the Soyuz, Progress spacecraft units and Space Shuttle.
