The International Space Station is now under construction, a cooperative venture carried out by the United States, Canada, and fourteen other nations. When completed, it will be the third-brightest object in the night sky. Here, in full-color photos and illustrations that complement vivid text, is a documentary-style recounting of the station's progress to date, and an account of what it will be like when it becomes operational. This book shows and explains the space station's components and describes the astronauts in training. It also recounts past achievements in space and includes sidebar features suggesting space-related activities kids can carry out on their own, or set up as classroom projects. Attached to the book's back cover is a sturdy cardboard model kit of the International Space Station as it will appear when operational. An instruction sheet shows kids how to build it.
