Astronauts begin transferring supplies
NASA says the crews of space shuttle Discovery and the International Space Station have started moving eight tons of supplies from the shuttle to the station.
European Space Agency astronauts Christer Fuglesang and Frank DeWinne became the first crew members to enter the newly installed Leonardo Multi-Purpose Logistics Module early Tuesday. NASA said the module is loaded with equipment that includes two research racks, a new station crew quarters, a freezer, an air revitalization system and the Colbert treadmill.
