In the Space Station Processing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, astronaut Terry Virts, third from left, discusses the intricacies of the International Space Station's Cupola module with vehicle integration test engineer Louise Kleba of Flight Crew Operations and astronaut Charles Hobaugh, right. The module was delivered by the European Space Agency in 2004 to Kennedy from Alenia Spazio in Turin, Italy. Cupola will provide unprecedented views of activities outside the station and spectacular views of the Earth. Crew members working inside the module will have a 360-degree panoramic view. Cupola has the capability for command and control workstations to be installed to assist in space station remote manipulator system and extra vehicular activities. Cupola is the final element of the space station core and is scheduled for launch on space shuttle Endeavour's STS-130 mission, targeted for Dec. 10, 2009. Photo credit: NASA/Cory Huston
