See Live International Space Station Data!Live From Space Station Data
Have you ever wondered what it's like to be an astronaut, or maybe even a specialist in mission control? In order to ensure the safety and health of the astronauts, mission control monitors and maintains all the vital components of the International Space Station. The ground support crew monitors the temperature and pressures of the Destiny Lab module to make sure the astronauts are comfortable. There are approximately 50,000 items on the ISS that have to be monitored to make sure everything is working properly. Now you, too, can monitor the cabin temperature or see how the solar array panels are storing power while they are in direct sunlight.

Live From Space Station is a joint effort to provide real-time scientific data to schools and the public. Find out more information about the "International Space Station: The Earth Tour" traveling exhibit, as well as information on the Live From Space Station contributors. Check out our Live From Space Station Partners.

Live From Space Station-Details
The International Space Station is an ideal facility to provide long-term educational resources to educators, science museums and web sites, Live From Space Stationand the general public. It is a wealth of information and as more experimenters are launched it will become an even more valuable teaching tool. Where else can you watch the effects of microgravity on plants, crystals, and even astronauts, LIVE!! Please visit our latest Live From Space Station exhibit on display at Discovery Place in Charlotte, NC. Live from Space Station adds an exciting element to Space Station-related science education and public outreach programs.
