DIY Space Station Kit with 3D Mechanical Puzzle
The International Space Station (ISS) is a modular (habitable artificial satellite) in low Earth orbit. Intergovernmental treaties and agreements establish the ownership and use of the space station. The station serves as a microgravity and space environment research laboratory in which scientific research is conducted in astrobiology, astronomy, meteorology, physics, and other fields. In addition, the ISS is suited for testing the spacecraft systems and equipment required for future long-duration missions to the Moon and Mars.
The assembly of the ISS, a significant endeavor in space architecture, began in November 1998. Russian modules launched and docked robotically, except for Rassvet. All other modules were delivered by the Space Shuttle.
The Astronauts Lodge is a good exercise for hands and spatial awareness because it comprises many different parts. These are two-dimensional solar panels, three-dimensional modules and blocks, and a massive platform. To assemble it, you will need to be patient and study the structure of a natural space station. Knowing the name and purpose of each module, it will be twice more interesting to assemble them with your own hands.
