SUMMARY: Two major components of the International Space Station arrived at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida this week. Node 2, built by the European Space Agency, will increase the station's living and work space, while the Japanese Experiment Module (JEM) will enhance its research capabilities. NASA engineers will perform integration tests over the course of the summer and then the modules will be moved to the KSC Space Station Processing Facility for a future launch on the space shuttle.
