1998: Six astronauts from space shuttle Endeavour open the doors to the new international space station for the first time in orbit 250 miles above the Earth. The mission carried the U.S.-built Unity node and the crew mated it to the Russian Zarya module already in orbit before connecting power and data transmission cables between the two modules.
