Space Game! Where in the Solar System is Destination Seven? And the location is…

Congratulations Bird of the Wind and Archimedes for figuring out that the multinational wonder with the out-of-this-world view is . . .

ISS!

Is? Is what?

I told you, ISS.

I don’t understand why you can’t answer a simple question. What is the name of Destination Seven?

Not ‘what’ — ISS.

Huh? What are you talking about???

I’m talking about Destination Seven, the International Space Station.

Ahh, now I get it! I-S-S, ISS.

 

Like I said! And if you look right now you can say goodbye to Earth’s largest artificial satellite.

Largest? You mean there are more?

But ISS is by far the biggest.

You mean ISS is as big as a flying football field???  Up there, in the sky? Going around the world?

Yup. And it’s not even Earth’s biggest satellite.

But you just said…

I said, ISS was the largest artificial satellite.

You mean there are UN-artificial satellites??

Only one, but it’s a GIANT.

Oh, you mean…

That’s right.

Guess what. We’re back! Wanna drop by the flight control center in Houston?

Can we?

Not only that, we can listen in on a live update from ISS!

 

 

That’s all for now Space Bloggers.  Hope you enjoyed our trip to ISS.  Next time we launch to a new Space Game destination!
