This 1/50 scale model represents the completed configuration of the ISS, the largest and most advanced laboratory ever built for research in space. 

Thirteen nations with partners from Canada, Japan, Russia and other European countries, will work together in this world class laboratory, providing long-duration weightlessness to support research in Life and Biomedical sciences, Microgravity Sciences, Engineering Research and Technology and Commercial Biotechnology and Materials and Development.  

The Space Station will fly at 248 nautical miles above the Earth at 17,500 mph, and orbit at a 51.6 degree inclination above and below the equator, providing wide Earth observation capabilities.
