    ISS022-E-062824 (11 Feb. 2010) --- Space shuttle Endeavour's aft payload bay, orbital maneuvering system (OMS) pods, vertical stabilizer and wings are featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 22 crew member during the transfer of the Tranquility node (mostly out of frame at right) from its stowage position in Endeavour's (STS-130) payload bay to position it on the port side of the Unity node of the International Space Station. The shadow of Tranquility in the grasp of the Canadarm2 is visible on the shuttle.

    ISS022-E-062843 (11 Feb. 2010) --- NASA astronaut Nicholas Patrick, STS-130 mission specialist, participates in the mission's first session of extravehicular activity (EVA) as construction and maintenance continue on the International Space Station. During the 6-hour, 32-minute spacewalk, Patrick and astronaut Robert Behnken (out of frame), mission specialist, relocated a temporary platform from the Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator, or Dextre, to the station's truss structure and installed two handles on the robot. Once Tranquility was structurally mated to Unity, the spacewalkers connected heater and data cables that will integrate the new module with the rest of the station's systems. They also pre-positioned insulation blankets and ammonia hoses that will be used to connect Tranquility to the station's cooling radiators during the mission's second spacewalk.
