The ISS serves as a microgravity and  Space environment research laboratory in which crew members conduct experiments in biology, human biology, physic, astronomy, meteorology, and The other fields.  station is suited for the testing of spacecraft systems and equipment required for missions to the Moon and Mars. The ISS,  maintains an orbit with an altitude of between 330 and 435 km (205 and 270 mi) by means of reboost manoeuvres using the engines of the  Zevzda module, or visiting spacecraft. It completes 15.54 orbits per day.
The International Space Station is the largest object ever constructed by humans in space. The station perimeter extends over roughly the area of a football field, although only a small fraction of this is composed of modules habitable by humans. The station is so large that it could not be launched all at once -- it continues to be built piecemeal. To function, the ISS needs huge trusses, some over 15 meters long and with masses over 10,000 kilograms, to keep it rigid and to route electricity and liquid coolants.
