International Space Station Anniversary Resource

Posted on by .

On November 2, 2000, the first inhabitants of the International Space Station moved aboard. Explorers have lived on the station continually since then. The current six-member crew is Expedition 25. During the 10 years and 25 crews, the space station has grown into a football field-sized orbiting science laboratory.
 
For the 10th anniversary of human presence on the International Space Station, the NASA.gov website has added a new interactive feature, Ten Years on the International Space Station. Many of the DIY Podcast topic modules include audio and video clips from the space station. Students can use this new resource to gather background information about the station that they may want to include in their podcasts. The interactive feature has fun facts and a video that includes some of the astronauts recorded in the DIY Podcast topic modules.

Space Station Resource for Students

Posted on by .

Most of the DIY Podcast topic modules include audio and video clips from the space station. If your students are looking for background information about the station, you might want to point them to “What is the International Space Station?” This NASA Education homework helper answers questions such as:

  •    How old is the space station?
  •    What are the parts of the space station?
  •    Why is the space station important?

Tidbits of information about the station might fit nicely in a DIY Podcast script that features astronauts on the space station.
