Space: September 8, 2002


The Space Station's crane arm has been moved from its initial temporary location to its permanent mounting on a rail on the main frame. This allows the arm to be moved around and aid in the further expansion of the station. A flight scheduled next October and November will add additional sections to the station. Atlantis will deliver the first starboard truss section, while Endeavor will bring the first port truss section.--Stephen V Cole
