Discovery Arrives at Space Station

Ad Feedback

The space shuttle Discovery and its crew of seven are dropping off thousands of pounds of equipment at the International Space Station.

The equipment, which includes a treadmill, is for the other six astronauts already posted to the space station.
   
Discovery will remain in orbit for a week and the astronauts will perform three space walks.
    
One of those astronauts onboard the shuttle is Patrick Forrester.  He carried into space with him a battery box from martyred missionary Nate Saint's plane.

"Bringing attention to and renewing interest in missions would be a great result of this experience," Forrester said.

Saint and four other missionaries were killed by a tribe of Waodani Indians in the jungles of Ecuador in 1956.
