Shuttle Discovery Docks At International Space Station

The space shuttle Discovery
docks with the international space station this morning for a visit
scheduled to last about a week and a half.
Flight engineer Daniel Tani (TAH'-nee) says he can't wait to
settle into his new home. He's taking up residence on the orbiting
laboratory, replacing Clay Anderson, who's been there for five
months.
NASA says it's found no launch damage on the shuttle so far, but
the three-person crew of the space station will snap digital photos
as Discovery does a slow motion backflip on its final approach.
Mission Control sent a cheeky wake-up call to the shuttle early
this morning, playing the song "Dancing in the Moonlight." It
begins with the lyrics: "We get it on most every night, when that
old moon gets so big and bright. It's a supernatural delight."
