CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – On the Shuttle Landing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the Node 3 module moves out of the Beluga Airbus. 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 ESA's Cupola observation module, a seven-window, dome-shaped structure. Tranquility is targeted for launch on Space Shuttle Endeavour in February 2010.
