Abstract:There are six people in space as you read these words. Let that sink in for a moment. Six human beings are zipping around the planet once every 90 minutes, pushing back the boundaries of scientific knowledge and experience. They are, of course, on the International Space Station - a project involving 16 nations: The USA, Canada, Japan, Russia, Brazil, and the 11 nations of the European Space Agency. To learn more, Maxwell paid a visit to ESA’s Dr. Johannes Wolf, Electromagnetic Compatibility engineer for their Electrical Engineering department.
