A media event at NASA's Kennedy Space Center highlighted the next piece to be added to the International Space Station, the Italian-built Node-2 module, known as Harmony. At center, Glenn C. Chin, mission manager for International Space Station and Spacecraft Processing, talks to reporters about processing of the Harmony module. Harmony will launch aboard space shuttle Discovery on mission STS-120, targeted for launch Oct. 23. The module is scheduled to be transferred at the end of the month to Launch Pad 39A, in preparation for its journey to the station. Harmony is approximately 21 feet long and 14 feet in diameter. It will act as an internal connecting port and passageway to additional international science labs and cargo spacecraft. The pressurized module will increase the living and working space inside the station and serve as a work platform outside for the station's robotic arm. Photo credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett
