CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – In the Space Station Processing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, an overhead crane lowers into Tranquility module, or Node 3, toward a work stand. The module will be delivered to the International Space Station on the STS-130 mission. Tranquility will eventually house the life support equipment necessary for the space station's permanent crew of six. It will also accommodate ESA's Cupola observation module, a seven-window, dome-shaped structure. Tranquility is targeted for launch on Space Shuttle Endeavour in February 2010.
