The space shuttle Atlantis is now piggy backing off the International Space Station.

Atlantis docked at the outpost late Wednesday morning and a short time later the hatch opened and the crew of Atlantis boarded the space station. Astronauts will stay a week delivering nearly 15 tons of spare parts needed to keep the ISS running for another decade.
