Space Station Size Compared to Soccer Field
In honor of World Cup 2014 kicking off in Brazil, NASA presents a graphic showing the relative size of the International Space Station compared to a soccer field, also known as a football field or football pitch.
The station, including its large solar arrays, spans nearly the area of the entire field, and weighs 924,739 pounds. The complex now has more livable room than a conventional six-bedroom house, and has two bathrooms, a gymnasium and a 360-degree bay window.
