Recalling First Station Assembly Mission

Kennedy Director Bob Cabana Recalls First Station Assembly Mission

NASA Public Affairs Officer Josh Byerly talks with Kennedy Space Center Director Bob Cabana, who in December 1998 was the commander of the first International Space Station assembly flight -- the STS-88 mission aboard space shuttle Endeavour. The STS-88 crew attached the first U.S. segment of the station, the Unity node, to the Zarya module that had launched into space just a few weeks earlier.

Since that first meeting of Zarya and Unity, the space station grew piece by piece with additions from each of the international partners built across three continents and leading to the largest and most complex spacecraft ever constructed.
