KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- In the Space Station Processing Facility, STS-120 Mission Specialist Daniel Tani (center) learns more about the Node 2, another element to be added to the International Space Station. With him, at right, is astronaut Peggy Whitson, who served on Expedition 5 aboard the space station. During her 6-month stay aboard the space station, Dr. Whitson installed the Mobile Base System, the S1 truss segment, and the P1 truss segment.. He and other crew members are at KSC for equipment familiarization. Tani will be joining the Expedition 15 crew on the space station as flight engineer. Node 2 will provide a passageway between three station science experiment facilities: the U.S. Destiny Laboratory, the Kibo Japanese Experiment Module, and the European Columbus Laboratory. STS-120 is targeted for launch on October 20. Photo credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett

Clockwise from the bottom are Commander Pamela Melroy, Mission Specialists Scott Parazynski and Stephanie Wilson, Pilot George Zamka, Mission Specialists Paolo Nespoli, Daniel Tani and Doug Wheelock (kneeling). Nespoli represents the European Space Agency. After the mission, Tani will remain aboard the International Space Station and return with the STS-122 crew, targeted to launch Dec. 6. The crew is at NASA's Kennedy Space Center for the pre-launch terminal countdown demonstration test, or TCDT. The TCDT provides astronauts and ground crews an opportunity to participate in various simulated countdown activities, including equipment familiarization and emergency training. The STS-120 mission will deliver the U.S. Node 2 module, named Harmony, aboard space shuttle Discovery to the International Space Station. Launch of Discovery on mission STS-120 is targeted for Oct. 23 at 11:38 a.m. EDT on a 14-day mission. Photo credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- The STS-120 crew is at NASA's Kennedy Space Center for the pre-launch terminal countdown demonstration test, or TCDT. During emergency egress training, crew members look at the distant landing site for the slidewire baskets that can carry the crew safely away from the shuttle. From left are Mission Specialists Daniel Tani, Scott Parazynski, Stephanie Wilson and Doug Wheelock, Commander Pamela Melroy and Mission Specialist Paolo Nespoli, who represents the European Space Agency. After the mission, Tani will remain aboard the International Space Station and return with the STS-122 crew, targeted to launch Dec. 6.
