How does the International Space Station work?

Watch more Space Animations:

The International Space Station is the largest man made object in space. It was built in pieces and then launched into space and assembled in orbit. In this video we’ll go over some background about the station and then walk through each module in the order that it was assembled.
This animation took a long time to make – enjoy and please share your comments with me!

I made a few modifications such as rigging panels and adding Dextre and the Candarm2 but otherwise it’s the same.
