A crew of seven astronauts blasted into space early Tuesday morning with a critical part.

The Japanese Space Agency brought its first major component of its massive Kibo lab that will be attached to the International Space Station. This first part has a storage compartment for experiments, tools and spare parts. The Japanese have invested about six-point-seven billion dollars in the space station program. The main part of their lab will fly on the next shuttle mission in May, with a porch for outdoor experiments, going up in 2009.
