The International Space Station (ISS) began to be built in 1998. The idea of ​​the construction of a Space Station was conceived in the 1980s, when the United States learned of the construction of a similar platform by part of the then Soviet Union.

But it was not until the mid-1990s that the United States finally manages to develop a project through agreements with 15 other countries in Europe, Asia, North America and South America.

The final design includes American, European research laboratories and research collaborations between all countries in matters ranging from studies on the crystallization of proteins, through the effects of air and water pollution, the environmental behavior of the Earth and life at minimum severities.

In recent years the station has caused certain controversies due mainly to the start of the so-called "space tourism" so much so that there is currently a project under study that plans to enable a 'hotel' in the space for tourists who can pay a tour
