Since the launch of Zarya, the first module of the ISS, on 20 November 1998, five space agencies have worked together to build the orbiting science lab—one of the most complex scientific and technological endeavours ever undertaken.
On 20 November 2013, celebrate with us as we launch a world-wide wave to cheer the ISS!
Starting at midnight GMT—the official time zone of the ISS—the European Space Agency (ESA), the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) are launching a world-wide wave for ISS.
Join the wave by following the hashtag #ISS15! Keep the wave rolling by telling us what the ISS—its science, technology and astronauts—means to you. Head outside and see the space station for yourself. If you're lucky enough to photograph it, share your photo by tagging it with #ISS15.
It's your space station, and it's your turn to get involved! How will you do the world-wide wave?
