CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Astronauts hitched a giant shipping crate full of home improvement "goodies" to the international space station on Monday, a critical step for boosting the population in orbit.
It was the first major job for the crews of the linked space station and space shuttle Endeavour, and highlighted their first full day together.
"We're here to work," the space station's skipper, Mike Fincke, called down. "This is the can-do crew."
Thank you, Ben Tan, thank you.
