The twentieth anniversary of the International Space Station was marked on 20 November as a tribute to one of the biggest expeditions in space which was done in the recent years. So far, the ISS has been a host to 232 individuals from across 18 countries who have contributed to the growth of science in every-way possible.

Some of the major partners of ISS includes NASA, Roscosmos of Russia, European Space Agency, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, Canadian Space Agency, space.com reported.

In recent news, the current administration led by US President Donald Trump had earlier made announcements that the country is no longer going to “directly support ISS” after 2025. The original design was to sustain the ISS for only fifteen years.
