International Space Station at 20: Former astronauts talk about living and working in space


The International Space Station (ISS) is celebrating a significant milestone, as the orbiting lab reaches its 20th anniversary of continuous human presence.

On Nov. 2, 2000, the first crew, Expedition 1, arrived at the ISS. NASA astronaut William Shepherd was the space station’s first commander, paving the way for 20 years of humans living and working in low Earth orbit. Since that first historic mission, the orbiting lab has been continuously occupied by humans.
