Space shuttle Endeavour has arrived at the International Space Station.

The shuttle docked at the orbiting outpost early on Wednesday. It’s delivering a new room and domed lookout.

Endeavour’s six astronauts will spend more than a week at the space station. They will install the new compartments, starting Thursday night, and help out with maintenance. Five men currently are living at the station.

This will be the last major construction job for the space station. Once the room, named Tranquility, and the observation deck are in place, the place will be 98 percent complete.

NASA, meanwhile, says Endeavour looks to be free of launch damage. Shuttle photos taken during the midnight rendezvous should confirm the early assessment.
