Nasa's Discovery space shuttle has arrived at the International Space Station (ISS).

The shuttle crew is delivering a final pair of solar arrays, which will provide the necessary power for the orbiting platform to expand.

The shuttle has also dropped off Koichi Wakata, the first Japanese astronaut to live aboard the station.
