The International Space Station Guide web site
http://www.mcs.net/~rusaerog/iss/ISS.html chronicles the development of the
ISS from 1993 to present. The site is dedicated to preserving the story of
the development of the International Space Station from its final major
redesign onward, to let the readers and history be the judge. The major
emphasis is on engineering, programmatic, management and international
relations developments. The site is always being updated adding both
current events, and increasing the record of past events.

Each year is represented with a index of major ISS components linked to an
index of headlines for each major component, which are linked to excerpts,
abstracts or overviews of various documents or news reports collected from
various places. Each excerpt is referenced to its source. Also included are
breif descriptions of major components past and present, and archives of
relevant documents, and schedules, etc.

Contradictory information, propaganda, misstatements, wild rumors,
blatently biased statements have been intentionally incorporated to
represent ISS development as it has been recorded to date. Taken together,
and contrasting different development efforts, interesting stories may
emerge to the reader that are not obvious in a traditional text. 

Comments about design and bugs are welcome, but there is no guarantee
anything will be done about it. We welcome your ideas, contributions of
material, stories or personal experiences working on ISS development for
consideration for incorporation into this site. Please send them to:
rusaerog@mcs.net  I can't guarantee that any material received will make it
onto the site.
