Station design from Rice Univ, TX. See more »


There are sections of the station that have no gravity (zero G). In those locations, nothing would hang. Frank Karger's briefcase would float, as would Lisa Karger's long hair. See more »

ISS Thirty Years Ago
23 July 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was sort of a cross between 2001 and Marooned. It made a very early attempt to make a scientifically accurate sci-fi series. The station was populated by people from all nations. They set up thier own government, and they led very politically correct lives. Any adult could disagree with the station's government and put the disagreement to a vote via an interactive TV. The show had some very interesting ideas about the future development of technology. Early in the show, a national election takes place by people turning on their home lights, and an spaceship in orbit counts the votes. Worth seeing if you can.
