The International Space Station is a state-of-the-art microgravity laboratory that is unlocking discoveries not possible on Earth, and is helping us push farther into deep space. Our research is contributing to medical and social benefits on our home planet, as well as stimulating a growing space economy. Were inspiring future generations from a platform that is one of the largest international collaborations of our time.
This is your space program. You determine what research to fund on the space station and what projects you want to fund back on Earth. Conducting research on the orbital laboratory can reduce the cost of some projects or give you the ability to do others. Results from the projects you fund determine you budget for the next year. Everything you do affects the outcome of your eight part program. But beware, events can happen that can influence that outcome. Will you be able to complete all of your eight mission objectives in four short years?
