All year long, NASA has spotlighted the diverse array of research made possible by the International Space Station, and how new discoveries serve as the foundation for expanding human presence farther into the solar system while also benefitting life on Earth. In this webinar closing out NASA's celebration of ISS 20, we'll examine what could be in store for this one-of-a-kind orbital platform as it enters its third decade of operations. Relevant instructional resources will also be included.
