Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online As painful as it might be, appendicitis can be remedied by a quick trip to the emergency room. However, that option wouldn’t be available to an astronaut traveling to Mars or some other distant destination. To remedy this potential problem, engineers at Virtual Incision are about to begin testing a remote-controlled apple-sized robot designed to perform internal surgery in a zero-gravity environment. Team member Shane Farritor, an...

International Space Station -- Continuing on from the United States' Skylab and Russia's Mir, the International Space Station (ISS) represents a permanent human presence in space. The space station is located in orbit around the Earth at an altitude of approximately 386 km, a type of orbit usually termed low Earth orbit. (The actual height varies over time by several kilometres due to atmospheric drag and reboosts.) It is serviced primarily by the Space Shuttle, and Soyuz and Progress...
