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."
