  Title: Technicians complete foaming around Atlantis', OV-104, 17" ET feed line
  Description:
  Technicians complete foaming around the area of Atlantis, Orbiter Vehicle 
  (OV) 104, 17 inch diameter external tank (ET) feed line in preparation for 
  the second liquid hydrogen tanking test at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC).  
  An elaborate network of sensors, leak detectors, and baggies were set up on 
  OV-104 by technicians.  Engineers hope this extra instrumentation will help 
  pinpoint the exact location of the leak.  OV-104 is scheduled to be
  launched  for the STS-38 mission, a classified Department of Defense (DOD)
  flight. View  provided by KSC with alternate number KSC-90PC-988.
