||This picture, taken on the 15th December 2001 shows the ISS more or less as it is now. It was taken by
Space Shuttle Endeavour as it was leaving the ISS. You can clearly see the robotic arm 'Canadarm2' sticking
out from the orbital outpost at the bottom.
||An pretty spectacular image of the ISS with the Earth as a backdrop.
||A nice head-on view of the ISS - the full picture is very big and so takes a while to download (3.2mb) but it's an amazing, breathtaking picture and if you have the time I would reccomend viewing it.
||An early view of the ISS showing just the American Unity (at the bottom) and Russian Zvezda (on top) modules.
||An interesting image, showing the 'Canadarm' robotic arm in the foreground and the Italian 'Raffaello' logistics transfer module at the top.
||A great picture of the Unity Module being lifted out of Space Shuttle Endeavour with the Canadian Remote Manipulator System robotic arm.
