This is the shuttle's 23rd flight to the International Space Station. The crew of seven astronauts on board will install a new module, which in turn, will allow the addition of new European and Japanese space laboratories on upcoming missions.

      this must have took a long time to invent this structure I wonder if in the future they could make a highly teched - rocket that has a huge database that could go deeper in to space to collect information for scientist to give us a better understanding of what's out there
