During Discovery’s STS-120 mission, astronauts have installed the
Harmony connecting module to the space station, setting the stage for
the arrival of new research laboratories from the European Space
Agency and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency on upcoming shuttle
missions. Before the shuttle returns home, the crew also will
relocate a set of solar arrays and test a repair method for the
shuttle’s heat shield.
