Node 2 model - photographed by Edgar Martins.

Node 2 is a European-built module of the International Space Station that serves as utility room, docking port and sleeping quarters. It was built in Italy for NASA and installed on the Space Station in 2007.

This photo is part of a comprehensive photographic survey of our facilities around the globe, together with those of our international partners - the results are collected in a book and exhibition.

Hello Alexander, many thanks for the insight into your training, hopefully should you make a significant observation during any of the research experiments on the ISS, you will be offered recognition for your work.
