Words matter. These are the best International Space Station Quotes from famous people such as Anne McClain, Vint Cerf, Marc Garneau, Peggy Whitson, Sunita Williams, and they’re great for sharing with your friends.
I think that my career and perhaps me being on the International Space Station can really show women and girls and everybody that hey, we’re not just sitting at the table, we’re leading the table.
There is a project that’s underway called the interplanetary Internet. It’s in operation between Earth and Mars. It’s operating on the International Space Station. It’s part of the spacecraft that’s in orbit around the Sun that’s rendezvoused with two planets.
After the Shuttle checks out on its two upcoming flights, it will be ready to take larger components up to the International Space Station later this fall.
I think the International Space Station is providing a key bridge from us living on Earth to going somewhere into deep space.
I think the crux of the matter was that if we were going to become partners in, for example, the International Space Station, we had to gain the respect of a country like the United States and particularly its space organization, NASA.
Planets look about the same here as they do to you on the Earth because we really aren’t that much closer. Our home, the International Space Station, orbits around the Earth at about 200 miles.
One of the things I think is really cool that we’re testing on board the International Space Station is the water reclamation system.
Finally my dream came true in that there was a possibility that I could travel to the International Space Station. I’ve gone through the medicals and the training and now I’m officially, by the Russian Space Federation, a cosmonaut in training.
When the International Space Station is finally launched, it will be fitted with special nickel-hydrogen batteries weighing a total of several tons, with a lifetime of just five years, requiring spares to be brought up from Earth at literally astronomical expense.
The International Space Station is a great place to live for a year.
Manned spaceflight has lost its glamour – understandably so, because it hardly seems inspiring, 40 years after Apollo, for astronauts merely to circle the Earth in the space shuttle and the International Space Station.
We continue to not only operate the International Space Station but to increase its capabilities as well as commercial contributions.
I’m a fully trained cosmonaut and have completed 800 hours training, which has made me the No. 1 civilian reserve ready to visit the International Space Station. I am determined to go up, and I want to explore the Moon, Mars and beyond!
We’ve learned a lot by building the International Space Station, the good, the bad. But, the fact is is that working together as a team, unity aboard that space station, we can accomplish great things.
If the United States commits to the goal of reaching Mars, it will almost certainly do so in reaction to the progress of other nations – as was the case with NASA, the Apollo program, and the project that became the International Space Station.
I think both the space shuttle program and the International Space Station program have not really lived up to their expectations.
Canada has made a strong commitment as a partner in the International Space Station and, like the other partners, wishes to see the assembly of this unique orbiting laboratory continue.
The Environmental Control and Life Support System (ECLSS), which controls the living environment on shuttles and on the International Space Station, doesn’t have the luxury of disposal: discharging trash into space has long been judged a bad idea.
NASA will send up a big sun shade that will be in orbit between the earth and sun and deflect 2 or 3 percent of the sunshine back into space. It would be cheaper than the international space station.
If someone offered me a free trip to the International Space Station, I would decline. I like Earth. I like the internet. I like Diet Coke. I have cats. I write about brave people – I’m not one of them.
When you talk to crews that went to Mir or have gone up to International Space Station, they say that you go through different phases of adaptation or getting used to the space environment.

The main goal of the International Space Station is to work on peaceful projects. In space, we’re all people from Earth.
Through these ongoing activities and possibly in the future, a Canadian will go live and work on the International Space Station and we will continue to make Canadians proud of our achievements in space.
The building of the International Space Station is something wonderful, and it will show us how to take the next step beyond low-Earth orbit.
