So... for operations on the US-portion of the station, Japan 12.8%, ESA 8.3%, Canada 2.3%, USA 76.6% of the common operating charges. [1] ; I will note that Britain is not charged separately, but this article is written in British instead of Canadian or American. Seems like bias for a non-affiliated dialect instead of the major affiliation, and Britain specfically blocked funding human spaceflight during the construction of this space station [2] ; so seems to be the wrong dialect of English for this article to use, as it is a dialect of a nation that was antithetical to the development of this station instead of instrumental in its development. It is a an ANTI-TIES instead of MOS:TIES -- (talk) 06:15, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

This argument isn't going to work with all the WP:WIKILAWYERs around here and their personally biased invocations of MOS:RETAIN when it was changed by a user without any consensus in the first place. Dustin (talk) 05:12, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

Year initiated[edit]

The ref for the 1985 claim is dead and doesn't seem to have it backed up. It's hard to say when the ISS was initiated because it's the combination of several different projects. Space Station Freedom (SSF) was initiated in 1984 but plans for it goes back to the late 1960s when NASA was deciding what to do after the Apollo program. ESA and NASDA (Japan) joined the SSF project but I'm unsure during what year. Mir-2 was planned as far back as 1976. In 1993, the SSF and Mir-2 projects were combined into what would be called the 'International Space Station'.--Craigboy (talk) 02:56, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

Leonardo PMM Move[edit]

The module was moved from Unity nadir to Tranquility forward last month, I'd love to update the Station Structure section, but can't make heads or tails of the markup. Can someone take care of this?

Roscosmos / Roskosmos[edit]

Are these the same (current score 8:8) - if they are would it not be better to be consistent ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:11, 18 July 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Roscosmos is correct. GroveGuy (talk) 07:24, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
