Details:
On the 20th November 1998 Roscosmos launched the Zarya module, the first element of the International Space Station. A few days later on the 4th December NASA launched the Unity module and the Space Shuttle crew connected the two main part of the station. I think the rest is history :)
Here is my small contribution to pay respect to this amazing project! You will see six of my own photographs taken with amateur equipment from London, UK. I put a circle on every photo to mark the famous Zarya-Unity pair. Take a look how big the ISS grew in a few years time. The International Space Station became the symbol of international cooperation, all the research has been done since for the benefit all mankind.

The bottom row is dedicated to the cargo side of the supply chain, the workhorses of the station. They keep sending vital food supply, replacement components and cool scientific equipment to and from the station. This is my personal achievement on taking photos of these tiny spacecrafts :)

We dont know, for how long can we enjoy the presence of this marvellous machine, so enjoy whilst we can. Download the ISS Detector app (or any app, there are many luckily) and watch it form your location crossing the morning/evening sky.
