Iconic Service to Science

Earth to all space enthusiasts: Iconic Service to Science is out of this world! The project shares the history and future of the International Space Station (ISS). Scrolling down the page, readers will discover an abridged story of the ISS, including its inception, first mission, and changes along the way. Monumental eras are categorized into five sections: At the Dawn of Unity, An Inhabited Island, A Second Chance, Private Investment, and The Future is Science. For example, the Private Investment section comments on the shift from a completely "transgovernmental project" to the incorporation of "private astronautics projects." What does the future hold for the ISS? In many ways, it is uncertain. As the site notes, "there is a possibility of prolonging the ISS program until 2028 or placing the station into private hands." One thing is for sure, as highlighted by the concluding chapter: "the future is science." Timur Fekhretdinov authored this project with assistance from an editing, design, and translation team. The team relied on data from, among other sources.
