This multinational space station orbits the earth more than 15 times a day and has done so for over 20 years. The project is remarkable not just for its engineering, but also for overcoming the politics of the very different nations. If conditions are right, you might be able to look to the sky tonight and see it. The next best thing is to make your own model to admire at any time.
