The station's orbital construction started in November 1998 with the launch of the Zarya FGB control module. This photo was taken by the first approaching Shuttle crew during the STS-88 mission.

During the STS-92 mission in October 2000, the Shuttle attached the Z1 truss segment with a large antenna (right) to the Unity module. Credit: NASA


A visible size of the ISS grew dramatically with the delivery of the P6 truss, which unfurled giant solar panels above the outpost.


The ISS after the STS-98 assembly flight in 2001, which delivered the Destiny lab (far right).


The Quest airlock (top right) and the robotic arm had been the latest additions seen by the departing crew of the STS-104 mission.


The station, as seen by the departing crew of the STS-110 mission. Newly delivered S0 truss can bee seen traversing the US segment. Also, a recently added Pirs docking compartment extends down from the Zvezda service module's nadir port.

The station regained its symmetry with the addition of the Port 1 (P1) truss during the STS-113 mission in December 2002. The configuration of the outpost "froze" at this stage for years, in the wake of the Columbia accident. Credit: NASA
