HOUSTON -- To celebrate the 10th anniversary of people continuously
living aboard the International Space Station, NASA is providing a
special 2010 calendar to teachers and the public.

The calendar contains unique images and highlights historic space
exploration milestones and educational facts about the international
laboratory. Each month has its own theme and offers a glimpse into
topics such as a typical day in the life of a crew member, the staff
that supports the station, and the massive dimensions of the orbiting
research facility.

The calendar is available for free download at:


"As we enter into our 10th year of human presence on the space
station, we celebrate that fact and acknowledge the success of the
station as one of the greatest technological, political and
engineering accomplishments in human history," said Space Station
Program Manager Mike Suffredini. "I hope people enjoy the calendar
and are inspired to learn something new and exciting about NASA and
the station throughout the year."

Nearly 100,000 copies of the calendar are being delivered to
classrooms in all 50 states through NASA education programs and
affiliated education networks.
