What is the International Space Station (ISS) like?

The International Space Station (ISS) is an experiment facility, where it's planned that up to 7 astronauts can safely live and conduct experiments in space. The ISS consists of "experiment modules", where the astronauts work and conduct experiments, and the "living quarters" where the astronauts live their daily lives. The ISS also has "Solar Arrays" that supplies electricity, and the "Remote Manipulator System", which is useful for performing work tasks that needs to be done outside of the station.
