SPACECRAFT CEMETERY || Where The International Space Station Will Die

When the first piece of the International Space Station launched in 1998, the celestial lab was only expected to last until 2015. The ISS was-and still is-a functioning lab that does many kinds of scientific research. And it's a testament to what international cooperation can achieve. But when its time for the program to end, the satellite will end up at Point Nemo, the farthest point from any land and life on Earth.
