STS-108 patch The space shuttle Endeavour successfully docked with the International Space Station Friday afternoon. Endeavour docked with the station at 3:03 pm EST (2003 GMT), about four minutes later than originally planned. The crew did encounter problems retracting a docking ring required to make a hard seal, but was able to correct the problem about an hour after docking, according to Spaceflight Now. Endeavour will remain docked to the station for the next week, transferring supplies as well as exchanging the Expedition Three crew on the station with the Expedition Four crew on the shuttle. One EVA by two members of the STS-108 crew is also scheduled for Monday.
