    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.

      NASA Infographic: 15 Years of the International Space Station. my one question is if a spaceship that spins creates it own gravity then why don't they make the international space station like the ones they show on movies and tv shows?

    What more does a Space Shuttle infographic really need to say?

    The International Space Station - The ISS is the largest, most expensive laboratory ever built in space. Costing more than $150 billion and taking 15 years to make. The Space Centre was originally scheduled to be shut down in 2016, but has now been funded through 2020. The ISS is expected to play a key role in the future efforts to explore the Moon, and eventually to land humans on Mars. (Earthkam 2013)
