CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla
After installing TV cameras and removing covers during a spacewalk Thursday, the astronauts at the linked shuttle and station got ready for their next challenge: attaching a storage shed to the bus-size lab. The 210-mile (338-kilometer) construction job was set for Friday afternoon.
The lab, named Kibo, Japanese for hope, is so big that it had to be split into three shuttle missions to get to the international space station. Its 14-foot (4-meter) storage shed was delivered in March and left in a temporary parking spot. The third and final section, a porch, will be launched next year.
