The International Space Station or known as the initials (ISS) is a space station used by the United States, Russia, Japan, Canada, and the EU. It was one of the minor settings in the sixth season of The Big Bang Theory.
Howard's week in the ISS
At the beginning of the sixth season, Howard worked in the Space Station for a week, building components that go up in the space station, one of which is the space toilet, which Howard is forced to clean since he is new here. Howard always Skype either Bernadette, or any of his friends, and sometimes speaks to his his mother on the phone. During much of his week, Howard is tormented and ridiculed by the other astronauts, due to his nickname "Froot Loops", and one example is that they glued a alien mask on his window, prompting Howard to scream for 9 minutes. Following Bernadette's advice, Howard stands up to the astronauts and gets a good night's sleep, not knowing that they doodled a mouse face on his face when he is sleeping. Howard can sometimes get drunk with the other astronauts and take off his pants.
