It has been manned since 2000, and is scheduled for completion in 2011. The Columbus module is 7 metres long and 4.5 metres wide. It is used for a range of life and materials science experiments by European astronauts. The ISS orbits the Earth at an altitude of around 350 kilometres, completing around 15-16 orbits a day.
