Space Laboratory

After three weeks of delay, the countdown has finally begun for the launch of Destiny, NASA's billion-dollar space station laboratory. The new module will allow scientists to carry out a wide range of experiments, some of which may benefit future space travelers, and others that are designed to tell us more about life back on earth. NPR's Larry Abramson reports.
