    SPACE STATION: Space Truss of the ISS
    The S0 Space Truss

    Interactive Truss Assembly Diagram

    The ISS structure is composed of a network of assembled trusses. The "junction" truss or the central truss is the S0 component. It links both the S series trusses and P series trusses together creating a posterior and starboard directionality to the station. With utilities being stored within this truss (such as power, data, thermal systems, connection systems), it becomes the brain to the rest of the integrated trusses. A robotic arm is attached to this truss giving it the ability to work in space.

    Both the S and P series trusses contain thermal control panels and solar arrays for collecting power. Modules plug into the integrated truss system to link the station together.
