There are currently 5 people in space. The space shuttle will …
Only about a half second!
The International Space Station is about 200 miles above Earth, which means if you drove straight into the air going 65 miles per hour, it would take you just over three hours. The International Space Station is the biggest human made structure in space and the third brightest object in the sky. The International Space Station (ISS) took 10 years and more than 30 missions to assemble. You might think that that's a long time for a space shuttle to go to the space station. It takes the International Space Station (ISS) about 93.37 minutes to circle the Earth once.
When the first components of the International Space Station launched in 1998, NASA thought the structure would last through 2015.

Unlike stars, the ISS doesn't flicker. It takes 2 days. The station will look like a fast-moving airplane, even though it is traveling in space at a speed of 17,500 miles per hour. SPACE is getting closer. Who Is Currently In Space?
NASA.gov brings you the latest images, videos and news from America's space agency. The International Space Station with ESA’s Columbus laboratory flies 400 km high at speeds that defy gravity – literally. Especially when you know that it takes about 2 minutes for the space shuttle to go into space.
As it is NASA's first all-American launch since 2011, the excitement for the launch of the Demo-2 mission.
Construction of the space station began in 1998 and the ISS was expected to be finished by 2003, but delays and cancellations caused the completion date to be pushed to late 2011. Several times a week, Mission Control at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX, determines sighting opportunities for over 6,700 locations worldwide. Four spaceships are parked to the space station including the SpaceX Dragon space freighter, the Northrop Grumman Cygnus resupply ship and Russia’s Soyuz MS-13 and MS-15 crew ships. SpaceX's Crew Dragon docked to the International Space Station (ISS) on Sunday, May 31, at 3.16pm BST (10.16am EDT).The event marked the …
There is one small problem, though: the ISS travels around the earth at 17,500 miles per hour. The space station is visible for a long …
A trip to the International Space Station now takes less time than flying from London to New York.
The recent NASA-SpaceX collaborative operation of sending two astronauts to the International Space Sation (ISS) has garnered a lot of public interest. The International Space Station (ISS) is a multi-nation construction project that is the largest single structure humans ever put into space. If your specific city or town isn’t listed, pick one that is fairly close to you. That’s how long it takes for the International Space Station, traveling at over 17,000 mph (27,300 kph), to cross the face of the Full Moon.
Dragon Attached to Station for Month-Long Stay Dec. 8, 2019: International Space Station Configuration. But the living conditions for the six astronauts on it are quite cramped.
We can calculate this by knowing: 1) the number of "Earth units" (EU). Bottom line first, the Crew Dragon is expected to dock with the ISS about 19 hours after liftoff.
At 28 800 km/h it only takes 90 minutes for the weightless laboratory to make a complete circuit of Earth.
