The International Space Station 1998 - 2010.




This is the International Space Station's (ISS) Assembly diagram, assembled piece by piece.

Watch how the parts come together as they were sent up from Earth.

Compare the size of the Space Station to the Boeing aeroplane in the lower left hand corner. (when video is complete)

Perhaps the most important work the human race is currently doing.
The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"

Lone voice: "I'm not."

Thank you binbag.....brilliant graphic....

I find the technology of the ISS absolutely fascinating. Wish I could cyber myself onto the ship for a tour across the sky.

Did you know that you could view the ISS travelling across the sky? I've been watching the ISS fly over my home for about 3 years now....usually at 4 AM:wah:

Check out the ISS flybys~~~very cool~~~~!

WOW!!!! Just tried to log onto the flyby server and the site was overloaded. You might want to try later. This has never happened before:-3
