THE International Space Station (ISS, 國際太空站 ), which has been in space for 18 years now, has added a new room. What is special about this one is that it is not made of metal. This room was inflated!
Nasa (美國太空總署 ) successfully attached it to the main body of the ISS. The room is not too big, just about four metres long and over three metres wide. But it took three days to inflate it fully!
Astronauts of the ISS have to wait another week before entering it because they have to make sure that everything is safe, especially when you are hanging in space high above Earth!
