CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – Russ Romanella, director of the ISS and Payload Processing Directorate at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, addresses the media and guests who were provided an opportunity to see the newest section of the International Space Station, the Tranquility node. Tranquility is a pressurized module that will provide room for many of the Station's life support systems. Managers from NASA, the European Space Agency, Thales Alenia Space and Boeing - the organizations 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.
