November 16, 2008--Space shuttle Endeavour prepares to dock with the International Space Station during a mission dubbed "Extreme Home Improvements" by NASA.

The crew left Earth on November 14, 2008, with an Italian-built logistics module (silver cylinder, center-left) containing more than 14,000 pounds (6,300 kilograms) of supplies and new equipment.

Astronauts will use the delivery to convert the space station from a three-bedroom, one-bathroom home into a five-bedroom, two-bath estate. Endeavour is scheduled to return to Earth on November 29, 2008.
