Good news for the International Space Station. The White House Administration approves an extension for another four years through 2024. Since 1998, this multi-billion dollar orbiting outpost has been travelling around the globe getting plenty of upgrades over the years. This big rig isn’t called a space station for nothing. It’s the largest space lab ever built stretching the length of a football field. At 924,739 pounds to be exact it’s hard to imagine it weighs almost nothing in orbit. The ISS is even bigger than a six-bedroom house. Inside, astronauts have some of the comforts of home including access to the internet, a gym, two bathrooms and plenty of opportunity to experiment with science!
