The International Space Station
« on: April 03, 2010, 04:06:20 PM »
This may be of interest if your interested in the space station and also what happens to some of your tax dollars although some is funded by other countries as well.

 Watch the pieces come together as they are sent

up from Earth.  This is the International Space

Station (ISS) Assembly diagram, piece by piece.

I had no idea the Space Station had grown to this

size. Watch the left hand corner for dates.  At the

end check out on the right side also. This is

really cool...

Government planning at it's best: Build it to be obsolete. At least the Shuttle ran for a few decades.

I was completely flabberghasted when I read that they would begin to dismantle it almost as soon as its completed.
