      The International Space Station (ISS) is a habitable artificial satellite in low Earth orbit. It follows the Salyut, Almaz, Skylab and Mir stations as the ninth space station to be inhabited. The ISS is a modular structure whose first component was launched in 1998. Now the largest artificial body in orbit, it can often be seen at the appropriate time with the naked eye from Earth. The ISS consists of pressurised modules, external trusses, solar arrays and other components...

    The Hubble Telescope [INFOGRAPHIC] The Hubble Telescope has allowed astronomers to explore the space in a whole new way. The telescope is not young by any means. It was launched in 1990. But it is still an invaluable tool for scientists to try and make sense of our universe. This infographic by Infographic World shows what the Hubble Telescope is all about:

    Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Voyager to boldly go where no man has ever gone before.

The JWST is a planned space telescope that is a joint collaboration of 20 countries. It will orbit the Sun approximately 1,500,000 km (930,000 mi) beyond the Earth, around the L2 Lagrange point. It is expected to launch in 2018. Photo: NASA/MSFC/David Higginbotham/Emmett Given
