      It’s about 70 m long and 110 m wide – the size of a football field. The internal volume that can be lived in is about 400 cubic metres and the volume that is pressurised is 900 cubic meters, about the same as the space inside a 747 Jumbo Jet.

      The great thing about the ISS too is that it is made up of seperate modules so you can change the size by adding or removing modules!
