How large is the International Space Station?

When the ISS is completed, it will weigh 925,000 pounds (419,600 kilograms). It will measure 361 feet (110.03 meters) from end to end or the equivalent of a football field, including the end zones. There will be more than 33,000 cubic feet (935 cubic meters) of habitable space. The amount of habitable space will be almost equal to the room inside one and a half Boeing 747 jetliners.
