  Title: Extended duration orbiter (EDO) with spacelab module depicted in art concept
  Description:
  This cutaway drawing depicts a typical Extended Duration Orbiter (EDO) 
  configuration with the EDO cryogenic (CRYO) pallet mounted in the aft end
  of  the payload bay (PLB) behind the Spacelab (SL) module.  This pallet
  carries  the extra cryogenic fuel (hydrogen and oxygen) required to extend
  the space  shuttle orbiter's stay time onorbit to 16 days plus two weather
  days.  Also  shown directly behind the crew cabin and in front of the SL
  module is an  expanded tunnel adapter which is a possible option on how to
  increase  available stowage volume for extended missions.
