one of the scientists greatest achievement ever is the international space station. Initially, it was something that you could only meet or read about in scientist stories. Nowadays, international space station has become popular and real. We get to hear about it in the news when there are people who have been sent to the space. However, we don’t have much information about what exactly the people that are sent up there do. There are a variety of things that scientist go to do in the space.
Water purification is one of the things done in the space. Drinking clean water is good for our health. Some people do not have access to safe water for drinking, not everybody is capable of accessing clean water for drinking. With the work being done in the space station, a number of people are now going to get access to clean water. A number of international water aid agencies have redesigned the technology that was meant to be used in the space station initially and they are now using it on earth. This technology for water purification has become popular across the world.
Nature contains proteins that can be advantageous to us if we make good use of them. The most appropriate environment for proteins to grow and where you can acquire more knowledge about them is the space. the low gravitational force in the space makes good environment for manufacturing protein crystals. The protein crystal produced in the space would be of great benefit in the future as they are one of the most effective elements that can used in various medical treatment. The use of protein crystal experimentation has started making an impact in the treatment of muscular dystrophy.
Lack of enough space is one of the greatest challenges faced by astronauts while they are up there. The medical equipment used in space has to be reduced and the space utilized well to create enough space. The extra ultrasound machines the astronauts built to use while they are in space have been transferred on earth and are now being used worldwide. The people that have benefited from this technology are the ones living in remote areas as they now have the health care facilities that they never had before.
To effectively deal with a national disaster, you have to get prepared before they occur. When a quick action is taken, several lives would be saved. One of the main functions of international space station is to know if any national disaster is just about to take place. This is because it is capable of capturing a large percentage of the highly populated areas on earth. International space station not only enable us to know what national disaster is about to occur but also how best to manage them when they occur and the most appropriate prevention measures.
