The Sekidean Low Anterian Orbit Station, commonly referred to by it shortcut SLAOS is a space station operated by the joint space program of the countries of the Sekidean Union. It is located on the Low Anterian Orbit, making one rotation in about 90 minutes.



Current usage


Relation to ISS

Compared to the International Space Station, SLAOS is about 6 times smaller. Despite having their own space station, SPASEK as an organization regulairly sends a Sekidean astronaut onboard ISS as well.

The first ever interstation flight

On May 9th, 2007, the first ever station-to-station spaceflight happened, as a emergency supply ship left ISS for SLAOS.

At 04:35 PMT, sensors in SLAOS's laboratory module announced a sudden depressurization, and the module was automatically sealed off. Commander at the time, Marꞇin Ȝөʒinov, gave a pre-abandonment order after an alarm was sounded at 04:37 PMT. The crew of four gathered in the emergency escape module, waiting if the leak is in any other module as well. There were no reports of any further leak.
