The STS-120 and Expedition 16 crews entered the Harmony module for the 
first time at 8:24 a.m EDT Saturday after STS-120 Mission Specialist 
Paolo Nespoli and Expedition 16 Commander Peggy Whitson opened the 
hatches. Whitson recognized the schools that submitted the name 
"Harmony" in an academic competition, and Nespoli made some comments 
about the significance of this new addition to the station. STS-120 
Commander Pam Melroy also presented Whitson with a necklace with a 
Harmony charm that was given to her by one of the winning schools.

The second spacewalk of the STS-120 mission is on tap for Sunday. The 
spacewalk is scheduled to begin at 5:58 a.m.
