CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – Shuttle Endeavour arrived at the International Space Station early today, delivering a new room and observation deck that will come close to completing construction 200 miles above Earth.

The midnight rendezvous occurred as the two spacecraft sailed over the Atlantic, just west of Portugal. NASA said that standard checks hadn’t revealed any launch damage.
