Following the launch on the 19th of January 2010 and all the randevouz manouvers, the Space Shuttle Atlantis on mission STS-23 finally docked to Celestia Space Station on the 21st, bringing up the Node 2 with PMA2, that gives the station 4 extra docking ports for future modules.

Actually on the station are 3 Cosmonauts of Russian Federation, 2 specialists from Japan and Saudi Arabia and 5 Americans astronauts.
