NASA launched space shuttle Discovery at 4:02:12 p.m. CDT (2202 GMT) on Saturday carrying the tour bus-sized science lab, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's (JAXA) pressurized module (JPM). The Kibo ("Hope") lab, which features an airlock and robotic arm, will be added to the station by the STS-124 crew during their two weeks in space.
The seven-member crew will also transfer supplies to the ISS, including components to fix a faulty toilet, as well as exchange astronauts with the station's long duration crew.
