A Space Station is a spacecraft(or docked spacecraft) that is capable of supporting crew members to remain in that station for long periods of time. Typical space stations are located in Low Earth Orbit.
A space station usually has no major propulsion or landing systems. In addition, most space stations are designed for research such as the effect of low-gravity on humans, and other objects.
A station usually consists of
- Truss(es) to shape the station
- Pressurized Parts
- Living Components
- Solar Panels
- Docking Port
- Escape Pods
Currently, there are no pressurized parts ingame. Most players simulate them with fuel tanks. Also, Structural Parts are also sometimes considered as trusses
