CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - Astronauts are doing some
rearranging at the International Space Station for the second night
in a row.
They used the space station's robot arm Monday evening to remove
a 10-year-old adapter from the space station. Then they began
transferring it to the freshly vacated port at the station's new
room, Tranquility. Until Sunday night, that port held a new
observation deck. The $27 million lookout was moved to its
permanent location early Monday.
The shuttle-station crews also are connecting power and data
lines in the domed, seven-windowed lookout, and equipping it with
all the necessary gear. Pilot Terry Virts says it's beautiful.
All this is taking place on the eve of the third and final
spacewalk of Endeavour's mission.
