The International Space Station from Orbit

Explanation: The International Space Station (ISS) is the largest human-made object ever to orbit the Earth. Late last month and earlier this month, the station was visited and resupplied by space shuttle Discovery. The ISS is currently operated by the Expedition 11 crew, consisting a Russian and an American astronaut. After departing the ISS, the crew of Discovery captured this spectacular vista of the orbiting space city. Visible components include modules, trusses, and expansive solar arrays that gather sunlight that is turned into needed electricity.

Fett, ich dachte, es hätte noch nicht so viel Sachen dran.
Wobei, fertig ist sie ja noch lange nicht. Aber sieht immerhin bereits nach Space Station aus.
