NASA infographic: 15 years of the International Space Station

The first International Space Station component, the Russian Zarya module, was launched 15 years ago yesterday, 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 is celebrating the milestone with an infographic showcasing some of the amazing and surprising facts about humanity’s home away from Earth.
