International Space Station

Cloudy with a chance of climate change:

Sensors on the station provide important data for forecasting global changes in climate and weather. High-resolution laser ranging and satellite imagery of our planet examine the impacts of changes to forests and other ecosystems, land usage, and water quality.

Recycling our most precious resource:

There is an entire closed-loop system onboard the ISS dedicated to filtering out impurities and contaminants in water. This technology has been adapted to aid remote locations around the world that would not otherwise have access to clean drinking water.

Investigations in microgravity:

Many experiments conducted on the orbital lab have important implications for environmental sustainability on Earth. These include investigations of aeroponic farming (using mist to water crops), carbon scrubbing, sustainable cotton growth, and water and energy conservation.

Together we do more:

The ISS is one of the most ambitious international collaborations ever attempted, serving as a model for what humanity can accomplish when diverse teams work together. Additionally, remote sensing data from the station has humanitarian applications, including disaster response and search-and-rescue missions.

Class is in session:

The ISS has become an accessible research platform through real-time connectivity to on-orbit experiments and crew activities. Through programs such as Genes in Space, Boeing is utilizing ISS to educate and inspire future generations to get involved in space exploration and STEM.

Power moves:

A suite of solar arrays — including six new Boeing-built arrays set to be installed this year —serve as the station’s primary power source, converting sunlight into energy. During periods of orbital darkness, Boeing-built energy efficient, lithium-ion batteries, which offer twice the power of their predecessor, ensure that the station is never without power.

It's not just what we do — it's also how we do it.
