At Launch Pad 39A, the payload canister with the SPACEHAB Double Module and Integrated Cargo Carrier (ICC) inside is lifted up the Rotating Service Structure (RSS) toward the Payload Changeout Room, an environmentally controlled facility supporting cargo delivery to the pad and vertical installation in the orbiter cargo bay. At right of the RSS is the Fixed Service Structure, topped by the 80-foot-tall fiberglass lightning mast. The primary payload on mission STS-101, the module and ICC contain internal logistics and resupply cargo for restoring full redundancy to the International Space Station power system in preparation for the arrival of the next pressurized module, the Russian-built Zvezda. The payloads will be transferred to Space Shuttle Atlantis after Atlantis rolls out to the pad. Launch of Atlantis on mission STS-101 is scheduled no earlier than April 17, 2000.
