Expedition 1 arrived during a orbital outpost Nov. 2, 2000, a initial residents including Commander William Shepherd of NASA and cosmonauts Sergei Krikalev and Yuri Gidzenko of Roscosmos. Their goal noted a start of an undeviating tellurian participation on a formidable that has seen a hire grow from a medium span of U.S. and Russian modules, to a sprawling laboratory and home a distance of a football field.

Orbiting 250 miles above a Earth, astronauts aboard a hire are conducting investigate not probable on a ground, such as a one-year goal with Kelly and Kornienko to investigate a effects on a tellurian physique of an extended stay in a microgravity environment. The space station also is facilitating a expansion of a strong blurb marketplace in low-Earth circuit for research, record development, and organisation and load transportation.
