Written by: developer

On the market: shared living space with six-month lease. No rent, but must work for room and board; no pets; weekends off (kind of); transportation provided; astronomical view.

“What a deal! Where do I sign? Oh, did I mention there is an almost-four-year training program? Still, it would be my chance to live aboard the International Space Station.”

Those were the thoughts that went through NASA Astronaut (and now Space Foundation Special Advisor – Human Spaceflight) Dr. Leroy Chiao‘s mind when asked if he wanted to live aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
