Side View Of The International Space Station
International Space Station

A side view of our spaceship. At the base of the solar arrays, a few white boxes: the batteries we’re in charge of replacing in January.
A few spacewalks are planned next year to keep the Space Station operating smoothly. Stay tuned for more information from NASA about this.

Notre vaisseau vu de côté. Sous les panneaux solaires, quelques boîtes blanches : ce sont les batteries qu’on devra remplacer en janvier. Quelques sorties extravéhiculaires sont prévues l’an prochain pour assurer le bon fonctionnement de la Station spatiale. La NASA communiquera bientôt plus d’informations à ce sujet !
