Endeavour docks with station

Endeavour docking with ISS on STS-100 (NASA) The space shuttle Endeavour docked with the International Space Station Saturday morning, beginning its week-long stay at the orbiting outpost. The shuttle docked at 9:59 am EDT (1359 GMT), about a half-hour later than planned because of a slow approach to the station. Although docked, the shuttle and station crews will not meet until Monday, as the STS-100 crew prepares for the spacewalk on Sunday by astronauts Chris Hadfield and Scott Parazynski, the first of two scheduled for the mission. The shuttle crew will spend Saturday moving supplies intended for the station into a vestibule between the shuttle and station for later retrieval by the station crew.
