The International Space Station is the largest orbiting laboratory ever built. Completed in 2011, the space station with its large solar arrays spans the area of a U.S. football field, including the end zones. The front of the poster displays an artistic depiction of the station. The back of the poster explains the basic facts* about the station and its many components. Three hands-on technology activities help students understand how the space station works.
