NASA's International Space Station Exhibit Orbits Around HCPL

ISS over earthWhat weighs one million pounds, is the size of a football field, zips along at a mind boggling 17,500 miles per hour about 330 miles above our heads and took the cooperative effort of fifteen nations to build?

The International Space Station, of course.

Now, through the end of the year, Harris County Public Library will be hosting an International Space Station Exhibit courtesy of NASA – Johnson Space Center. The exhibit features a detailed model of the ISS as well as informational banners about the station’s mission, the men and women from across the globe who live and work on it, and the Zero-Robotics Competition for high schoolers sponsored by NASA and MIT. The exhibit will visit fifteen HCPL branches throughout the county to everyone will have an opportunity to see it.
