ISS, Our Foothold in Space

I found a great video on UTube this morning. It is a time-lapse view of the International Space Station’s evolution compressed to about 25 seconds.

Keep in mind that the ISS is still a work in progress with at least 17 additional flights planned to complete the station. After those missions and the planned Hubble Telescope rescue, the shuttles are to be retired and replaced by the yet-to-be-built Orion launch vehicle.
