The International Space Station (ISS) is a habitable artificial satellite that has been orbiting the Earth since 1998
Several nations worked together to financially aid the building and use of the space station that has been orbiting the Earth since 1998.
That’s twenty years of orbiting, receiving and sending back information to the planet.
Reports reveal that the ISS is expected to operate until at least 2028.
And residents in Saudi will get the chance to see it with their own eyes
If you live in Jeddah and everywhere in the Makkah region, you’ve got higher chances of seeing the ISS pass by.
A tweet by a space-enthusiast announced that at precisely 6:21pm tonight (Wednesday), residents of the above-mentioned areas will get to see the ISS live in action.
