Astronauts expand the ISS with the "Columbus" laboratory
Successful mission: The crew of the spacecraft "Atlantis" has installed the European Laboratory "Columbus" at the Space Station ISS . However, the German astronaut Hans Schlegel had to stay on board due to problems - the job outside was taken over by two colleagues.
At 10:30 p.m. German time, the success message came: Hans Schlegel and his colleagues have successfully docked the space laboratory on the ISS. The European 'Columbus' module is now part of the ISS. The "Columbus" touched the space station for the first time.
"Columbus" is a cylinder about seven meters long with a diameter of 4.5 meters. Up to three astronauts can carry out experiments in it at the same time. The total cost for the module was 880 million euros.
