ISS infographic - Happy 15th Birthday. The first International Space Station component, the Russian Zarya module, was launched 15 years ago today, on November 20, 1998. Since then, a consortium of 15 different nations have constructed a world-class orbiting laboratory, with a continual human presence onboard since 2000. Construction was considered officially complete in 2011, but new modules are still planned.

Tranquility Base. (Credit: LRO, NASA) Neil Armstrong & Buzz Aldrin landed here on 20 July 1969. LRO found the lunar module and equipment that Aldrin had put out, such as the reflector (LRRR) for bouncing laser beams to measure the distance to the Moon. A faint trail in the lunar dust marked Armstrong's path to a nearby crater called Little West. Ian Ridpath, "Exploring the Apollo Landing Sites", http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art29536.asp
