Next time I complain about moving somebody

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – The astronauts aboard the linked shuttle and station moved a giant chest of drawers from one spacecraft to the other Monday, and hitched it to the orbiting outpost.

The Italian-built chest — nicknamed Leonardo, as in Leonardo da Vinci — is filled with nearly 8 tons of equipment and science experiments for the space station and its six residents, including a treadmill named after Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert. Much of the gear is stored in portable racks.

The rest here.
