STS-130: move of PMA 3 (NASA) Astronauts on the International Space Station moved a docking port to the new Tranquility module, a day after repositioning a cupola to its final location on that module. Astronauts used the station's robotic arm Monday night to move the Pressurized Mating Adaptor #3 from a temporary storage location on the Harmony module to the end of Tranquility. That port was freed up after astronauts moved the cupola to its final location on the nadir, Earth-facing port on the module Sunday night. One more spacewalk is planned for the STS-130 mission on Tuesday night, when astronauts will prepare the exterior of the cupola.
