The Expedition 16 crew and the visiting STS-120 crew continue joint 
operations aboard the International Space Station.

Since the seven STS-120 astronauts arrived on Oct. 25, the station has 
grown in size. The addition of the Harmony module sets the stage for the 
arrival of new research laboratories from the European Space Agency and 
the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency during upcoming shuttle missions.

The crews have performed two spacewalks so far, and three more 
spacewalks are planned during STS-120ís stay at the station.

STS-120ís stay at the station is slated to wrap up when Discovery 
undocks Nov. 4.

For the latest news and information on the STS-120 mission, visit the
