Feb. 2010 -- International Space Station's Dedication to Astronaut Lacy Veach

The Tranquility Node on the International Space Station has a cupola, a 6.5-by-5-foot, dome-shaped module made of seven windows (pictured here with Mission Specialist Robert Behnken). This is the largest and most complex window assembly ever launched into space and is installed in an Earth-facing port. The cupola is used by the ISS crew to operate the Station's robot arm, monitor dockings of incoming craft, help out during spacewalks, and make scientific observations. The cupola provides a unique vantage point for observing Earth and for instruments devoted to studying atmospheric phenomena affecting climate change. It also has an important function as a panoramic relaxation area: one of the most enjoyable experiences aboard the Station is looking down at Earth or up at the stars. During the ribbon-cutting ceremony onboard the ISS in February, 2010, the opening of the cupola was dedicated to Astronaut Lacy Veach who was a driving force in the early development of the cupola. And it was the last project he worked on before he died of cancer in 1995. A photograph of Astronuat Lacy Veach and a Moon rock from the Apollo 11 sample collection are on permanent display inside the cupola. Watch a video of the ISS cupola ribbon-cutting ceremony from NASAtelevision.
