Though the video itself is nothing new, the captions on the bottom are a wonderful addition.

I believe it has been updated, though, to reflect the currently planned sequence.  I notice that the Russian solar array tower is no longer included.

In any case, it's a very cool animation!  I look forward to the long overdue completion of ISS!

It's too bad they had to cancel some elements in order to continue the construction of the ISS. The Russian SPP to me was like the trademark symbol of the station from the renderings.

How come at the end of the animation Zarya's solar panels are folded up?


Great video :)

No longer needed and also in the way for the S1/P1 radiator panels.

Is it?  I'll have to take another look!  Updated or not, it is still an excellent animation.

Pretty sure the old sequence had the fourth set of solar arrays being added before Node 2...

Nah... just did a side-by-side comparison.  They're exactly the same.  Only differences are that the one posted in this thread is slower, and those very cool captions.  

Can't link directly to it, but you can find it on this page:
