Watch the International Space Station pass overhead from several thousand worldwide locations. It is the third brightest object in the sky and easy to spot if you know when to look up. Visible to the naked eye, it looks like a fast-moving plane only much higher and travelling thousands of miles an hour faster!

The One-Year Mission focuses on research expected to yield beneficial knowledge on the medical, psychological and biomedical challenges astronauts face during long-duration space flight. Launched in March 2015, American Astronaut Scott Kelly and Russian Cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko are collaborating on investigations while residing on the International Space Station (ISS) for a year, twice as long as typical U.S. missions.
