Living Space

Exploring the optimal environmental conditions for human life

How do you think your Living Space on Earth compares to that of the International Space Station?

Let's Talk Science has partnered with the Canadian Space Agency to help students explore how environmental variables such as temperature, humidity, and carbon dioxide influence human health and well-being. This knowledge is important not only on Earth, but also on the International Space Station and someday maybe even on the Moon or Mars!
