STS-114: shuttle docking with ISS (NASA) The space shuttle Discovery docked with the International Space Station on Thursday morning, the first shuttle to visit the station since late 2002. Discovery docked with the Destiny module of the ISS at 7:18 am EDT (1118 GMT). During the shuttle's approach the orbiter performed a 360-degree "backflip" to allow the two members of the ISS crew to photograph the underside of the orbiter and look for any damage. The station crew reported that they did not see any problems with the underside of the shuttle. The shuttle will remain docked at the ISS for about eight days; during that time the shuttle crew will perform three EVAs.
