The International Space Station is an artificial space station orbiting in space. Soldiers from many countries are staying and conducting research.

Every piece of information about space gives us surprise and amazement. The astronauts at the space station often take pictures of the situation there and cause a stir. The International Space Station (ISS), which orbits at an altitude of 278 to 460 km above the Earth, is reported to take 91 minutes to orbit the Earth once it orbits.

According to NASA, the International Space Station orbits the Earth 15.7 times a day, and astronauts staying at the station watch the sunrise and set 16 times a day. That is, at 45-minute intervals daily, the sun rises and sets.

The temperature difference in space can be enormous. At sunrise, the temperature is 250 degrees Fahrenheit and at sunset, it is -250 Fahrenheit. But astronauts are safe because their spacesuit is designed to withstand external weather.
