In the Space Station Processing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, an overhead crane lifts the Tranquility module, or Node 3, from its shipping container. The crane will move it to a work stand. 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/Jim Grossmann
