What a View!

Associated Press reports:
Two astronauts from the US shuttle Endeavour have successfully completed the first phase of installing a new observation deck deep in space.


Tranquility - named after the Apollo 11 lunar landing site - will provide spectacular panoramic views of Earth and help crew members monitor space walks and docking operations.  It can accommodate two crew members at a time and is equipped with portable workstations that can control station and robotic activities.  Six windows are arrayed along its sides and another on top, all protected against the impact of tiny meteorites.
This should make for some spectacular photography. HERE's the latest picture from the observation deck, just before transmission was lost.
