The International Space Station (ISS) is the ultimate bachelor pad, floating high above the Earth with some of the coolest amenities you can imagine. It’s like a space-age treehouse, but instead of a rickety old ladder, you need a rocket to get up there.
First off, the views from the ISS are out of this world (literally). You can see the entire planet from up there, and it’s like looking at a giant blue and green marble. Plus, you get to witness some of the most stunning sunrises and sunsets you’ll ever see.
Coming home after five months spent in space
After spending five months aboard the International Space Station conducting research experiments and maintaining the facility, the four astronauts of the Crew-5 team successfully returned to Earth by splashing down in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Tampa, Florida, according to CNN.
The team, consisting of NASA astronauts, an astronaut from JAXA, and a cosmonaut from Roscosmos, disembarked from the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule with the help of rescue ships waiting for their arrival. They handed off operations to the Crew-6 team a few days prior to their departure.
The best part of living on the ISS has to be the camaraderie between the crew members. They spend months at a time up there, so they become like a little space family. They play games, tell jokes, and even throw parties (although they have to be careful not to get too wild and accidentally bump into something).
All in all, the International Space Station is the ultimate adventure playground for anyone who dreams of exploring the final frontier. It’s like a giant treehouse, but instead of a “no girls allowed” sign, it’s got a “no gravity allowed” sign.
