Shuttle docks with ISS
Posted: Mon, Nov 25, 2002, 9:05 PM ET (0205 GMT)
STS-113: shuttle docking with ISS (NASA) The space shuttle Endeavour successfully docked with the International Space Station Monday afternoon. Endeavour docked with the Destiny module of ISS at 4:59 pm EST (2159 GMT). The docking took place 33 minutes later than planned because the shuttle took a slow, deliberate approach to the station; no problems with the approach or docking were reported. Hatches between the station and shuttle opened 90 minutes after the docking. The crew plans to spend Monday evening moving equipment from Endeavour to the station, including Soyuz seat liners custom-fitted for the Expedition Six crew arriving at the station on Endeavour. The next major activity is scheduled for Tuesday, when astronauts John Herrington and Michael Lopez-Alegria will perform the first of three EVAs scheduled for the mission, connecting the P1 truss segment to the station.
