Crews to Enter Harmony



SUBMITTED BY ARTHUR N1ORC - AMSAT A/C #31468

*Crews to Enter Harmony*
27 October 2007

The STS-120 and Expedition 16 crews will enter the Harmony module for 
the first time just before 9 a.m. EDT Saturday after Mission Specialist 
Paolo Nespoli and Expedition 16 Commander Peggy Whitson open the 
hatches. Harmony will provide the docking ports for new research 
laboratories from the European Space Agency and the Japan Aerospace 
Exploration Agency. The laboratories will be delivered to the station on 
upcoming shuttle missions.

The crews will also prepare for Sunday’s spacewalk, the second of the 
mission. The spacewalk will be conducted by Mission Specialist Scott 
Parazynski and Expedition 16 Flight Engineer Daniel Tani. The duo will 
conduct an overnight “campout” Saturday in the station’s airlock.
