The Expedition 16 crew and the visiting STS-120 crew continue joint
operations aboard the International Space Station.
Since the seven STS-120 astronauts arrived on Oct. 25, the station has
grown in size. The addition of the Harmony module sets the stage for the
arrival of new research laboratories from the European Space Agency and
the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency during upcoming shuttle missions.
The crews have performed two spacewalks so far, and three more
spacewalks are planned during STS-120’s stay at the station.
STS-120’s stay at the station is slated to wrap up when Discovery
undocks Nov. 4.
