Astronauts attached a large Japanese laboratory to the International Space Station on Tuesday, giving the orbiting outpost its biggest room, NASA television showed.

Japanese astronaut Akihiko Hoshide and American colleague Karen Nyberg used the station's robotic arm to slowly pull the 15-tonne lab out of the cargo bay of space shuttle Discovery, which docked on Monday, and attach it to its new home.
