The station’s main solar arrays are seen in the left foreground. There are currently six people living and working on the space station, which is located 250 miles above the Earth. As it orbits our home planet, they conduct important research in the unique microgravity laboratory. This science will not only help us travel farther into the solar system, but also has direct benefits to life on Earth. Credit: NASA
