Assembly of the International Space Station

The process of assembling the International Space Station has been under way since the 1990s. Zarya, the first ISS module, was launched by a Proton rocket on 20 November 1998; the STS-88 Space Shuttle mission followed two weeks after Zarya was launched, bringing Unity, the first of three node modules, connecting it to Zarya. This bare 2-module core of the ISS remained uncrewed for the next one and a half years, until in July 2000 the Russian module Zvezda was launched by a Proton rocket, allowing a maximum crew of two astronauts or cosmonauts to be on the ISS permanently; the ISS has a pressurized volume of 1,000 cubic metres, a mass of 420,000 kilograms 100 kilowatts of power output, a truss 108.4 metres long, modules 74 metres long, a crew of six. Building the complete station required more than 40 assembly flights; as of 2011, 36 Space Shuttle flights delivered ISS elements. Other assembly flights consisted of modules lifted by the Russian Proton rocket or, in the case of Pirs and Poisk, the Soyuz-U rocket.

Some of the larger modules include: Zarya Unity Module Zvezda Destiny Laboratory Module Harmony Module Columbus orbital facility Japanese Experiment Module known as Kibo The truss and solar panels are a large part of the station. The space station is located in orbit around the Earth at an altitude of 410 km, a type of orbit termed low Earth orbit, it orbits Earth in a period of about 90 minutes. A total of 14 main pressurized modules were scheduled to be part of the ISS by its completion date in 2010. A number of smaller pressurized sections will be adjunct to them; the ISS, when completed, will consist of a set of communicating pressurized modules connected to a truss, on which four large pairs of photovoltaic modules are attached. The pressurized modules and the truss are perpendicular: the truss spanning from starboard to port and the habitable zone extending on the aft-forward axis. Although during the construction the station attitude may vary, when all four photovoltaic modules are in their definitive position the aft-forward axis will be parallel to the velocity vector.

In addition to the assembly and utilization flights 30 Progress spacecraft flights are required to provide logistics until 2010. Experimental equipment and consumables are and will be delivered by all vehicles visiting the ISS: the SpaceX Dragon, the Russian Progress, the European ATV and the Japanese HTV, space station downmass will be carried back to Earth facilities on the Dragon. After the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster on 1 February 2003, there was some uncertainty over the future of the ISS; the subsequent two and a half-year suspension of the U. S. Space Shuttle program, followed by problems with resuming flight operations in 2005, were major obstacles; the Space Shuttle program resumed flight on 26 July 2005, with the STS-114 mission of Discovery. This mission to the ISS was intended both to test new safety measures implemented since the Columbia disaster and deliver supplies to the station. Although the mission succeeded safely, it was not without risk. Between the Columbia disaster and the resumption of Shuttle launches, crew exchanges were carried out using the Russian Soyuz spacecraft.

Starting with Expedition 7, two-astronaut caretaker crews were launched in contrast to the launched crews of three. Because the ISS had not been visited by a shuttle for an extended period, a larger than planned amount of waste accumulated, temporarily hindering station operations in 2004; however Progress transports and the STS-114 shuttle flight took care of this problem. Many changes were made to the planned ISS before the Columbia disaster. Modules and other structures were cancelled or replaced, the number of Shuttle flights to the ISS was reduced from planned numbers. However, more than 80% of the hardware intended to be part of the ISS in the late 1990s was orbited and is now part of the ISS's configuration. During the shuttle stand-down, construction of the ISS was halted and the science conducted aboard was limited due to the crew size of two, adding to earlier delays due to Shuttle problems and the Russian space agency's budget constraints. In March 2006, a meeting of the heads of the five participating space agencies accepted the new ISS construction schedule that planned to complete the ISS by 2010.

As of May 2009, a crew of six has been established following 12 Shuttle construction flights after the second "Return to Flight" mission STS-121. Requirements for stepping up the crew size included enhanced environmental support on the ISS, a second Soyuz permanently docked on the station to function as a second'lifeboat', more frequent Progress flights to provide double the amount of consumables, more fuel for orbit raising maneuvers, a sufficient supply line of experimental equipment. Additions included the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module in 2016, numerous Russian c
