This week the International Space Station has achieved a huge milestone by completing 100,000th orbit of the Earth.

The ISS was first launched into space in 1998 and has been circling the globe ever since.

It takes the spacecraft around an hour and a half to go right around the Earth.

In total it has traveled more than 2.6 billion miles, that’s around the distance of ten round trips from Earth to Mars!

Currently there are six people living on board the ISS.

Check out the cool video below about the ISS.
