Kinetic refers to the energy related to motion. The kinetic energy of an object is defined as the amount of work required to bring that object a state of motion from a state of rest. The kinetic energy of an object with mass, m moving at speed, v, is given by the equation.
An objects exhibits energy only if v≠0 that is, it is a state of motion. From all the options given only the space station is in motion.
