NASA Astronaut Daniel Tani has joined the Expedition 16 crew, replacing 
Flight Engineer Clayton Anderson. Tani arrived at the station as a 
member of Space Shuttle Discovery’s STS-120 crew earlier today. 
Discovery docked to the station at 8:40 a.m. EDT.

He and Anderson officially swapped crews when his custom-made seat liner 
was swapped out in the Soyuz spacecraft docked to the station. Anderson 
is wrapping up a four-month stay aboard the station. He will return to 
Earth on Discovery, which is slated to undock Nov. 4. Tani is scheduled 
to leave the station later this year.

Discovery also delivered the Harmony module, which will be attached to 
the station Friday. In addition, the STS-120 crew will conduct the first 
of five scheduled spacewalks Friday.

STS-120 is the 23rd shuttle mission to visit the station.
