After playing Orbiter for a while I've decided It's time for me to start building my first space station. Dubbed the TARSS (Technology And Research Space Station) when completed it will be able to sustain a crew of 8 for 3 month without resupply.

The first mission launched the Primary Node, which the rest of the station will be built around, three modules, one crew hab module and two with science equipment and a Cupola that can be used to observe Earth from the station.
