The International Space Station (ISS) continues its scientific journey orbiting over 200 miles above the Earth’s surface.

This past year, spacecraft carried crew from around the world to and from the space station, where they participated in and supported hundreds of scientific investigations and technology demonstrations.

Nasa has taken a look back at some of the best photos of breakthrough science the crew members conducted in 2022.

From deploying CubeSats to studying fluid dynamics in space, the orbiting lab expanded its legacy of science and discovery for the benefit of humanity.

The ISS is the largest modular space station currently in low Earth orbit. It is a multinational collaborative project involving five participating space agencies: NASA (United States), Roscosmos (Russia), JAXA (Japan), ESA (Europe), and CSA (Canada).

iss067e149651 (June 24, 2022) --- NASA astronauts Jessica Watkins and Bob Hines work on XROOTS, which used the station?s Veggie facility to test liquid- and air-based techniques to grow plants rather than traditional growth media. These techniques could enable production of crops on a larger scale for future space exploration. --- SEE SWNS STORY SWNAiss --- The International Space Station continues its scientific journey orbiting over 200 miles above the Earth?s surface.

The ownership and use of the space station is established by intergovernmental treaties and agreements.

The station serves as a microgravity and space environment research laboratory in which scientific research is conducted in astrobiology, astronomy, meteorology, physics, and other fields.
