In the past few years, NASA has been in the center of attention. The National Space administration managed to launch a new mission on Mars. Project InSight successfully landed on Mars on Monday, November 26.

But with that in mind, this documentary looks at another success of NASA, the International Space Station. The habitable artificial satellite is located in low Earth orbit.

The first component was launched in the orbit in 1998, with the first residents arriving in November 2000. Since then, people have come and go at the international space station.

But how does the space station works? And why it is significant? Watch the documentary to understand.
