Check out this excellent graphic showing how the International Space Station was built. As a bonus it also shows the planned future module installations. Very cool and interactive clip.

It`s a shame that some modules maybe reaching the latter part of their lifespan.

MMelphistopheles, nice idea, how about using the shuttles as trucks between station and the moon :-)

Pretty awesome. Has anyone thought about converting one of the Space Shuttles into a huge module, permanently docking it to the ISS, and returning the crew via Soyuz? That would give them a heck of a lot of room. They're retiring the shuttles anyway, right? You might even turn it into a space hotel for rich idiots. Just a thought.
