An International Success - A Milestone for Europe

Columbus Laboratory is now installed. Scientific research results were brought back for the first time.

Columbus is designed to support some 100 experiments per year over ten years. These experiments address all the major research areas: biology, exobiology, human physiology, fluid physics, fundamental physics, technology, solar physics. More European-built elements are also under preparation to be launched to the ISS over the coming years, notably the European Robotic Arm, the Node 3 module and the Cupola observation post.

See a fascinating VIDEO of the landing. (NASA)
