Fascinating Facts About the International Space Station

The ISS is Much Bigger Than You Realize

12. The ISS is Much Bigger Than You Realize

When you see a picture of the ISS, it may look a little small. That’s because it is usually in front of the earth or you see a video taken from one of the corrido chambers.

The ISS is actually quite spacious spanning over 109 meters (357.6 feet) in length.

If you’re looking for a size comparison, the total length of the ISS is just a little bit shorter than an American football field including the end-zones.

So there’s plenty of space to work, relax, and wave to aliens in space.
