Ask an Explainer

Q:

How many people can a spaceship hold?

A:

This depends on the ship!

The capsules of the Apollo missions could hold three people. 

The Space shuttle could hold seven people. 

The International Space Station (ISS) usually holds six people.

Right now, the Russian operated Soyuz, our way from Earth to the ISS, carries three astronauts into space.
