Houston lab housing duplicate of ISS systems
Hidden away in a nondescript building in Houston, Texas, is a duplicate set of the computing systems found onboard the International Space Station (ISS).
The building houses the ISS software development and integration laboratory — a facility run by Nasa and aerospace company Boeing. The lab is the last stop for software before it is uploaded to the station.
Software is first developed in the prime software production facility, before being checked in the software verification facility and subsequently integrated with duplicate station hardware in the software integration laboratory.
