A Space Shuttle Main Engine (SSME) hoist prepares to lift the first Block I engine to be installed in an orbiter into the number one position on Discovery while the spaceplane is being prepared for the STS-70 mission in the high bay of Orbiter Processing Facility bay 2. The new engine, SSME No. 2036, features a new high-pressure liquid oxygen turbopump, a two-duct powerhead, a baffleless main injector, a single-coil heat exchange and start sequence modifications. The other two main engines to be used during the liftoff of the STS-70 are of the existing Phase II design. (Photo Release Date: 4/17/95 )
