Since today marks the 20th anniversary of when the International Space Station began being constructed, I figured we’d make todays SciFact about the ISS. Also to celebrate the occasion, I’ll give a little rapid fire quick facts about the ISS, some you may know, some may surprise you, enjoy!
- The ISS travels at 5 miles-per-second while in orbit
- At this speed, it orbits our planet every 90 minutes
- The cost of building the ISS is estimated at over $120 billion
- The ISS has only two bathrooms (yikes)
I hope you learned something new and be sure to check back tomorrow for tomorrows SciFact!!
