The U.S. Node 2 module, known as Harmony, is lowered into the waiting payload canister in the Space Station Processing Facility. The canister will deliver Harmony to Launch Pad 39A for installation into space shuttle Discovery's payload bay. The Italian-built module will act as an internal connecting port and passageway to additional international science labs and cargo spacecraft. In addition to increasing the living and working space inside the Station, it also will serve as a work platform outside for the Station's robotic arm. Harmony will be installed on the Station during mission STS-120, targeted to launch 23 October.
