Window on the World
The space shuttle crew is saying goodbye to the space station astronauts tonight. They have completed their mission.
Here's a picture of the new window on the world that they installed on the space station. What a beautiful view they must have of earth!
The space station is special. Many countries have made parts to build it. The United States and Russia have built most of the pieces. Canada added a mobile robotic arm. Italy built the new window on the world.
Would you like to make your own space station? It's fun! Go to http://er.jsc.nasa.gov/SEH/International_Space_Station_Bookmark.pdf
