However, because of a high-tech life support system, the area is kept clean. ”The air in the space station actually smelled great,” he said in a video posted by NASA on April 5. “The filters in the life support system do a great job cleaning the air. There were no issues at all.”The ISS is largest inhabitable spacecraft ever built, according to NASA. It weighs over 925,000 pounds and measures 357 feet, roughly the size of a football field. Currently, 52 expeditions have launched to the site.The ISS’s life support system ensures the station’s atmosphere is habitable for all onboard by providing the right amount of oxygen throughout the vessel.
