On the Shuttle Landing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, a crane lifts the Node 3 module toward the flatbed that will transport it to the Space Station Processing Facility. Named Tranquility, 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 the European Space Agency's Cupola observation module, a seven-window, dome-shaped structure. Tranquility is targeted for launch aboard space shuttle Endeavour in February 2010. Photo credit: NASA/Jack Pfaller
