KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- In the Multi-Payload Processing Facility, an overhead crane lowers a GetAway Special canister (GAS can) onto the Hitchhiker Bridge. The bridge is a carrier for the Fast Reaction Experiments Enabling Science, Technology, Applications and Research (FREESTAR) that incorporates eight high priority secondary attached shuttle experiments on mission STS-107. A research mission, the primary payload is the first flight of the SHI Research Double Module (SHI/RDM), also known as SPACEHAB. The experiments range from material sciences to life sciences (many rats). STS-107 is scheduled to launch July 11, 2002 (Photo Release Date: 03/25/2002 )
