The International Space Station has many uses (mostly for research):
- Low-gravity experiments
- Meteorological observations (of Earth)
- Research into the effects of low gravity on living organisms
- Low-gravity protein synthesis
- Low-gravity crystal synthesis (materials form differently under low-gravity conditions)
- Deep-space observations (of stars)
Canada's contributions to the ISS are few (but more than 5, fortunately for you) they include:
- Help in the completion of the Space Station Remote Manipulator (SSRMS) - a space manipulator.
- Canadarm2 - a space manipulator system
- Mobile Base System - a platform and storage system, works with the Canadarm2
- Dextre - a two-armed robot
- Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator (SPDM) - basically another robot.Source(s): http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/space/exploration/iss... http://www.space.gc.ca/asc/eng/iss/status.asp http://www.space.gc.ca/asc/eng/iss/canadarm2/defau... http://www.space.gc.ca/asc/eng/missions/sts-111/de... http://www.space.gc.ca/asc/eng/missions/sts-123/de...
