The Space Station Research Explorer provides current information on ISS experiments, facilities and research results. The Space Station Research Explorer consists of five different sections: Experiments, Facilities, Benefits, Interactive Media, and Links. The Experiments section provides access to the six main experiment categories and their subcategories. Experiments are depicted as dots within the category system and the stems connecting the dots to the system depict the length of time the experiment has been on orbit. Users can explore further by selecting a category which reveals the subcategories. They can then select a category and explore individual experiments. Experiment descriptions consist of in depth information, links, images, and publications if available. The Experiments section can be furthered narrowed by selecting a specific expedition and sponsor by using the dials at the top right of the screen. The experiments can also be searched for keywords using the search option. The Facilities section provides an interior view of three of the station modules; Columbus, Kibo, and Destiny.

Tapping a rack gives a brief description of the rack and an experiment description if available. The facilities section also contains exterior views of external platforms. Selecting the platform shows the experiments being run on the platforms and associated data.The Benefits section provides information on Human Health, Earth Benefits and Global education. Selecting a section allows the benefits to be investigated further. The Media section provides access to three tabs: Podcasts, Games, and Videos.
