Amazing Facts #07 - International Space Station

Astronauts on the international space station witness around 16 sunrises and 16 sunsets every day.

The International Space Station travels at a brisk 17,100 miles per hour. That means it orbits Earth every 90 minutes so it sees a sunrise every 90 minutes. Thus, every day, the residents of the ISS witness 16 sunrises and 16 sunsets.
