Astronaut Mark L. Polansky, STS-98 pilot, works inside the newly attached Destiny laboratory onboard the International Space Station (ISS). After the Destiny hatch was opened early in the day, members of both the shuttle and station crews went to work quickly inside the new module, activating air systems, fire extinguishers, alarm systems, computers and internal communications. The crews also took some photos and continued equipment transfers from the shuttle to the station. The scene was taken with a digital still camera.
