I got a question, What kind of time zone do they have in space?(When you are in the ISS) because i heard you have a sun rise about 14 times a day in the ISS, so it can't be the same time zone on Earth.

I thought it was Houston time?

If I understood correctly the ISS is on GMT.


we live on a timezone roughly halfway between Houston and Moscow - Greenwich Mean Time
