ISS PMA-2 moved to Harmony (NASA) The crew of the International Space Station moved a shuttle docking adapter early Monday, the next step in a complicated process to prepare the station for the installation of new lab modules. The Expedition 16 crew used the station's robot arm to move the PMA-2 docking adapter from the end of the Destiny lab module to the new Harmony node module, a process that took about two hours. The move frees up Destiny to receive Harmony, a move planned for Wednesday. Two spacewalks by the station's crew are planned for later next month to complete the installation of Harmony at its permanent location, making it ready to receive European and Japanese lab modules to be launched to the station in the coming months.
