  Title: CRISTA-SPAS payload in the payload bay of STS-66 shuttle Atlantis
  Description:
  Clouds over the Atlantic Ocean serve as the backdrop for this 70mm scene of
  the Cryogenic Infrared Spectrometers and Telescopes for the Atmosphere
  (CRISTA), attached to the Shuttle Pallet System (SPAS). CRISTA-SPAS was in
  the grasp of the Space Shuttle Atlantis Remote Manipulator System (RMS)
  arm. The crew deployed the Crista-SPAS on November 4, 1994 and the tandem
  remained in free-flight until November 12, 1994 when it was retrieved by
  the Canadian-built RMS, controlled by payload commander Ellen Ochoa.
