The International Space Station

Wendy . Blog Shakespeare slept here! Published 11 January 2010

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />The International Space Station is often in the news,and has been since 1998. We know that there was a basic structure and that other components have been added over the years. We hear about the people on board, the difficulties they have, the experiments that are carried out. We know the ISS is up there and that it is quite an achievement.

Watch this presentation via computer graphics. You'll see the components come together piece by piece. What a difference from the original project. Open it full-screen so you can see the information onthe sides too. This is really neat, cool, awesome, sweet....chuli, chachi, guay, alucinante. O sea, mola mazo!

VOCABULARY:

The news: las noticias

carried out: llevar a cabo

come together: juntarse

full-screen: pantalla completa

the sides: los lados

neat/cool/awesome/sweet: maravilloso

How can we go there? Is it cheap? Is there any "BECA" I can apply to visit the Station? :P

I want to go there when I have money, before many people go there.
