Re: It does have a finite life
The ISS's modules indeed have a finite life. However people seem to forget that it's..well.. modular. It comes apart. So the life of ISS itself could be infinite. There is absolutely nothing stopping anyone, at least from a technological standpoint, from building and launching new modules to replace aging ones. Hell they're already in the middle of replacing all the solar panels. The only thing that could kill the ISS is if no one had any use for it anymore.
