The Endeavour space crew made a safe and successful docking at the International Space Station led by mission commander Mark Kelly. The two day flight began with an emotional launch with Kelly's wife Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in attendance. The shuttle officially docked at 6:14am EDT and was welcomed with a customary ringing of the outpost bell and cheers from an awaiting six-person team. The teams later entered into meetings and safety briefings aboard the station.
The crew prepares for a 10 day stay onboard the space station and working on their first job, mounting spare parts pallet outside of the station.
