KENNEDY SPACE CENTER -- Discovery has arrived. After performing a slow back flip, the space shuttle has docked at the international space station.
Now the hard work begins. The crew is delivering a bus-sized science lab that will be added to the facility. The crew also brought a spare pump to repair the only on-board toilet, which broke nearly two weeks ago.

Astronaut Gregory Chamitoff now begins a six-month stay aboard the space station. He'll replace Garrett Reisman, who has been on board since March.
