STS-120: Harmony module installation (NASA) The crews of the International Space Station and space shuttle Discovery added a new node module to the station as part of a six-hour spacewalk. The Harmony module was moved from the cargo bay of Discovery to its temporary position on the port side of the Unity module by the station's robotic arm during a spacewalk by STS-120 astronauts Scott Parazynski and Doug Wheelock that started at 5:02 am EDT (0902 GMT) Friday. Harmony will be moved to its permanent location at the end of the Destiny module after the shuttle leaves the station. In addition to supporting the installation, Parazynski and Wheelock prepared the P6 solar power truss for its relocation during a later spacewalk and also retrieved a failed communications antenna during their 6-hour, 14-minute spacewalk. The shuttle and station crews will enter the Harmony module for the first time Saturday, while preparing for the shuttle mission's second EVA on Sunday.
