International Space Station (ISS)

The International Space Station Oral History Project includes interviews with individuals who have contributed significantly to the success of the ISS Program. The oral history sessions reflect experiences and insight on topics such as the early days of the multi-national partnership, the development of its science program, and the challenges encountered in establishing the orbiting laboratory.

The interviews were conducted by the JSC History Office between July and September, 2015, in Houston, Texas.
