Description from the packaging.

Design. Construct. Explore.

International space technology.

Experience the future today.
Space stations are the wave of the future. Construction has begun on the International Space Station, the first outpost ever designed for permanent habitation. It will be completed in 2003. But you don't have to wait that long. Space Station Simulator lets you experience the thrill of living in space now.

Using the same modules currently under construction by the United States, Russia, Japan, Canada, and the member countries of the European Space Agency, Space Station Simulator lets you create your own space station.
