How the International Space Station affects everyday life on Earth


Today’s Video of the Day features a look at Destination Station, a campaign launched by NASA and the Center for the Advancement of Science and Space (CASIS) to share how work done on the International Space Station impacts our everyday life here on Earth.

Scientists on the International Space Station are able to utilize its unique conditions like microgravity and low-Earth orbit to conduct more than 2,000 experiments by 2,400 researchers from over 95 countries. The research extends from human health, biotechnology, and Earth science.
