International Space Station

Key Points

I will have been successful in my reading when:
  • I have read each of these articles
  • I have written two or three complete paragraphs to summarise the key ideas within these
three articles.

The ISS orbits the earth in 90 minutes, and travels 16 times around the earth once a day it also
travels 400 km and 320 km above us. The ISS is the biggest object ever sent into space to orbit
the earth. 16 countries, including many ESA member states all worked together to build the Station.
The biggest part of the ISS is a central truss which 16 huge solar panels are attached to.
The Columbus laboratory was transported to the ISS by shuttle  on the 11th of 2008.
The astronauts study plants, animals and weightlessness.

Hermit Poem

The itch from my unshaved beard
 As I read my book in boredom
    sand pouring down as hours go by
    wind howls and the chill creeps through
Deep, deep in the dark dark cave lurks a hermit
Limited accessories he sits and waits  

He hides away in his shell and eats of what he has
