Window Observational Research Facility

The Space Shuttle Atlantis landed today (February 20, 2001) after a 13 day mission. During this flight, the shuttle astronauts installed a new science module, the Destiny Laboratory, on the International Space Station. The laboratory features an earth-observing window with the highest quality optics ever flown on a human-occupied spacecraft. An astronaut shows off the window in the course of a video tour of the interior of the space station. [larger MPEG (4.5MB)]
