The International Space Station
As astronauts and cosmonauts lift off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and Russia’s Baikonur Cosmodrome, students are on board. They join Space Shuttle and ISS teams moving into their orbiting home, watching them unpack and settle in. Thanks to IMAX cameras, your students can peek in on the daily duties of fellow crew members living and working in space – eating with the crew, catching a glimpse of sleeping astronauts, and enjoying humorous moments in the near weightless world of Earth orbit.
Whether “swimming” in microgravity within the ISS modules or suiting up for a spacewalk and stepping out of the airlock, students learn first-hand what it means to be a space explorer. They understand the challenges of being a free-floating construction worker. They see through the eyes of spacewalkers the spectacular view of our awesome planet, an Earth with no visible borders between countries.
