ISS UPS: Overnight Delivery to the International Space Station

iss-delivery

NASA, in partnership with Intuitive machines, developed the Terrestrial Return Vehicle (TRV) for delivering parcels and samples to the International Space Station in as little as 24 hours. WHAT NOW UPS?!

If there is one thing that hinders the experiments conducted on the ISS, it’s the fact that it’s so damn far away. The whole process of transporting vital equipment or samples can take weeks.

The TRV’s specific purpose is┬áspeedy shipping back and forth between Terra Firma and Terra Sky-a.

Shh, I won’t tell. Go ahead, stick a few cases of beer in there. Maybe a stripper or two.
