International Space Station: BIG

You really don't understand the size of something like the International Space Station until you see a picture like this. Here two astronauts use the Canada Arm to replace a faulty cooling system housed in the large brace holding up the main solar arrays. This thing is BIG.

Now if we could just retrofit it for a trip to Mars.
