The Project

The complete ISS is built in Minecraft by DNV and after nearly 2 weeks it is finished.
NOTE: All the station parts are completely hand-made! No MC-Edit or other programs!

The Station

The International Space Station (ISS) is a space station, or a habitable artificial satellite in low Earth orbit. The ninth space station to be inhabited by crews, it follows the Soviet and later Russian Salyut, Almaz, and Mir stations, and America's Skylab. The ISS is a modular structure whose first component was launched in 1998. Now the largest artificial body in orbit, it can often be seen at the appropriate time with the naked eye from Earth. The ISS consists of pressurised modules, external trusses, solar arrays and other components. ISS components have been launched by American Space Shuttles as well as Russian Proton and Soyuz rockets. Budget constraints led to the merger of three space station projects with the Japanese Kib� module and Canadian robotics. In 1993 the partially built components for a Soviet/Russian space station Mir-2, the proposed American Freedom, and the proposed European Columbus merged into a single multinational programme. The ISS is arguably the most expensive single item ever constructed.


The ISS serves as a microgravity and space environment research laboratory in which crew members conduct experiments in biology, human biology, physics, astronomy, meteorology and other fields. The station is suited for the testing of spacecraft systems and equipment required for missions to the Moon and Mars.


Since the arrival of Expedition 1 on 2 November 2000, the station has been continuously occupied for 12years and 296days, currently the longest continuous human presence in space. (In 2010, the station surpassed the previous record of almost 10 years (or 3,634 days) held by Mir.) The station is serviced by Soyuz spacecraft, Progress spacecraft, the Automated Transfer Vehicle, the H-II Transfer Vehicle, and the Dragon spacecraft. It has been visited by astronauts and cosmonauts from 15 different nations.


The ISS programme is a joint project among five participating space agencies: NASA, Roskosmos, JAXA, ESA, and CSA. The ownership and use of the space station is established by intergovernmental treaties and agreements. The station is divided into two sections, the Russian orbital segment (ROS) and the United States orbital segment (USOS), which is shared by many nations. The ISS maintains an orbit with an altitude of between 330km (205mi) and 435km (270mi) by means of reboost manoeuvres using the engines of the Zvezda module or visiting spacecraft. It completes 15.50orbits per day.The ISS is funded until 2020, and may operate until 2028. The Russian Federal Space Agency, Roskosmos (RKA) has proposed using the ISS to commission modules for a new space station, called OPSEK, before the remainder of the ISS is deorbited.

Thank you all for your support!
Please unselect the copy biomes option in MCEdit or you will get in a Sky ( End) biome.

Gave you a diamond for the effort and obvious time you took to research. I was thinking about trying this too, but believe I will try an inter-system or interstellar ship instead. My recommendation would be to build this or similar type craft at larger than scale. I built a Caterpillar 797F dump truck at 4:1 scale (www.planetminecraft.com/project/ultimate-in-minecraft-equipment---cat797f/) and found that I should probably have tried it at a minimum of 6:1 and best at 10 or 12:1. Just a thought. Course that would have made it almost 400 blocks tall.

First: Thank you! Second: I think that an interstellar ship would be very cool! And for the caterpillar,what kind of mines do you have to fit that beast in?????

I'm sorry but it was too small to make one.
