Explore the International Space Station

The International Space Station (ISS) is a large crewed orbital space laboratory.  It was funded and constructed by the space agencies of Canada, Japan, Russia, United States and participating EU members.  It is approximately the size of a football pitch and orbits the Earth at a height of 400Km.

Destination Space has built an Augmented Reality ISS to help you explore the space station from the view of an orbiting vehicle.  Using the App and the Destination Space ISS target provided, explore the space station to see all the different components.  Look for badges of Space Agencies and try and see if you can find Tim Peake.
