Astronauts enter Harmony
Posted: Sun, Oct 28, 2007, 7:46 AM ET (1146 GMT)
STS-120: astronauts inside Harmony (NASA) Astronauts entered the International Space Station's newest module, Harmony, on Saturday, checking out the module while also preparing for the next spacewalk of the current shuttle mission. Harmony was attached to the station on Friday during a spacewalk by two shuttle astronauts; astronauts on Saturday entered the module for the first time to check out the module's systems. The module is temporarily docked to the station's Unity module, but will be moved later this year to the far end of the Destiny lab module. On Sunday astronauts Scott Parazynski and Dan Tani will perform the second of five EVAs scheduled for the STS-120 mission, outfitting the exterior of Harmony and also detaching the P6 solar truss so that the shuttle and station's robotic arms can move the unit to its permanent location at the end of the port side of the station's truss.
