The Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) is the sole manager of the International Space Station (ISS) U.S. National Laboratory. CASIS: Science in Space for Life on Earth is an exhibit that educates guests on how CASIS works with the ISS to run scientific experiments in space. It is also a celebration of the impact of CASIS and the ISS on science here on Earth.
CASIS: Science in Space for Life on Earth is housed in the Core Module Integration Simulator (CMIS), which is Martin-Marietta’s (now known as Lockheed Martin) mock-up for their entry for Space Station Freedom in the 1980s.
This exhibit features a timeline of historical and fictional space stations, a look at life inside the ISS and a live tracker of its location in space.
Thank you to CASIS for the generous donation to make this exhibit possible.
