Here’s a useful animation of the assembly of the Space Station, from USA Today.
I spotted only one flaw: their delivery of the P6 truss in December 2000 (STS-97) shows a building block/telescoping installation of the P6, when in fact the -97 crew delivered the truss in one monolithic chunk, just as the other solar array truss sections were delivered.
More images of the installation of the Destiny lab can be found at my website in the Gallery, under STS-98 images.
Make sure you get outside to take a look at the ISS on one of its spectacular night sky passes.
