ISS: Making The World A Better Place

The International Space Station is a symbol of international peace in action, with five space agencies representing 15 nations, performing experiments on behalf of 93 countries. As a result, the ISS has pioneered new and innovative approaches to building international cooperation, and perhaps most importantly, the effort involved in sustaining the program while integrating national interests and investments has transformed what was a sometimes fragile and precarious coalition at its start, into a strong and united international partnership committed to common peaceful goals. Based on these examples, isn’t it time to recognize the ISS with the Nobel Peace Prize?
