The International Space Station (ISS) was a space station, or a habitable artificial satellite, in low Earth orbit.
The space station is designed to be a permanent orbiting research facility. Its major purpose is to perform world-class science and research that only a microgravity environment can provide. The station crew spends their day working on science experiments that require their input, as well as monitoring those that are controlled from the ground. They also take part in medical experiments to determine how well their bodies are adjusting to living in microgravity for long periods of time.
While floating some 240 miles (390 kilometers) above Earth's surface it travels around the Earth at an average speed of 27,700 km/h, completing 16 orbits per day.
In this story, the six crew members who were on board the ISS survived the petrification. Later, the ISS was abandoned and the astronauts made landfall near Japan in an attempt to re-establish contact with humanity. Ishigami Village was established by Byakuya Ishigami to pass down the legacy of mankind to Senku.
- Year 2019: The ISS Crew departed back down to Earth, leaving Rei behind while it awaits Byakuya's return.
- Year 2020: Upon learning the ISS will crash, Rei transforms the food the crew left behind into fuel.
