The International Space Station is being released by Lego as a toy model.

The International Space Station is a space station that is present in low Earth orbit. The ISS was a joint effort by five organisations NASA (United States), Roscosmos (Russia), JAXA (Japan), ESA (Europe), and CSA (Canada). The maintenance and the functioning of the ISS is handled by intergovernmental treaties and several agreements. The station is suited and often used for the testing of spacecraft systems that will be further required for future missions to the Moon and Mars.
