The International Space Station 2008. On this image is the ATV Jules Verne still attached to the station. It was removed and it committed a successful 'suicide' in our atmosphere this fall.

On November 20th ten years ago, the first International Space Station module was launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The launch of the Russian-built Zarya module marked the start of on-orbit assembly of the most extraordinary space complex. ISS is a truly international space cooperation shown in particular by the modules built by different nations.
