  • Fortunately, when the space station was designed, planners recognized that having a platform in low Earth orbit (LEO), which is about half the altitude of most Earth remote sensing satellites, provided researchers the opportunity to do something unique. (nasa.gov)
  • That means that instead of passing over at the same time every day, which is typical of an Earth remote sensing satellite, the space station actually has a precessing orbit and does not go over the poles. (nasa.gov)
  • The precessing orbit of the space station laid out over a map of the Earth. (nasa.gov)
  • This review will consider the impact of true and simulated microgravity and other characteristics of the space flight environment on bacterial cell behavior in relation to the potential for serious infections that may appear during missions to astronomical objects beyond low Earth orbit.

  • Scientific research on the International Space Station is a collection of experiments that require one or more of the unusual conditions present in low Earth orbit. (wikipedia.org)
