    If you can equip it with rocket boosters, then yes.

    Technically? yeah, you could send what ever you want. Heck a tesla can fly to mars, was a tesla designed to to that? You can pretty much send anything you want anywhere, you just gotta throw it hard enough.

    Unfortunatly no, it does not have that ability.

    ps, The " International Space Station" incorrectly has people thinking it is in space. It is not. It is within Earth's atmoshere.It is orbiting Earth only 200 miles above.

    What is impressive is that it is travelling at almost 20,000 miles an hour and orbiting the Earth 16 times each day.

    No, as it lacks engines to accelerate to the velocity needed to head for the Moon, as well as decelerate into Lunar orbit. Plus, no fuel tanks for said engines, and it's structure cannot take the acceleration, anyway.

    No. It doesn't have rocket engines to get out of orbit.

    No... it can boost itself in orbit, but that's about it.

    It could but it's not designed to do so. What would be the purpose?
