International Space Station astronauts. Astronaut Peter J K Wisoff reflected in the visor of Michael Lopez-Alegria's spacesuit as he takes a photograph of him. The Earth is seen behind Wisoff as the astronauts work on the International Space Station (ISS). This was during Space Shuttle mission STS- 92 (11th-24th October 2000), which added new modules to the ISS. The ISS is a collaboration between NASA, ESA, the Russian space agency, Canada, Japan and Brazil. When complete, it will be over four times larger than Mir, the Russian space station, and over 100 metres in length. It will orbit at an altitude of 400 kilometres. It is hoped to be completed in 2004.
