NASA's Kennedy Space Center provided an opportunity for the media to see the newest section of the International Space Station, the Tranquility node. Tranquility is a pressurised module that will provide room for many of the Station's life support systems. Managers from NASA, the ESA, Thales Alenia Space and Boeing - the organisations involved in building and processing the module for flight - were available for a question-and-answer session during the event. Tranquility will be delivered to the Station by Space Shuttle Endeavour on the STS-130 mission, scheduled for launch in February 2010.
