KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. -- Members of the STS-104 crew practice using tools they will work with on their mission. The crew is at KSC to take part in Crew Equipment Interface Test activities. Seen are (from left) Pilot Charles O. Hobaugh and Mission Specialist Michael L. Gernhardt. Also among the crew are Commander Steven W. Lindsey and Mission Specialists Janet L. Kavandi and James F. Reilly. The mission will carry the Joint Airlock Module to the International Space Station. The U.S.-made module will allow astronauts and cosmonauts in residence on the Station to perform future spacewalks without the presence of a Space Shuttle. The module, which comprises a crew lock and an equipment lock, will be connected to the starboard (right) side of Node 1 Unity. Atlantis will also carry oxygen and nitrogen storage tanks, vital to operation of the Joint Airlock, on a Spacelab Logistics Double Pallet in the payload bay. The tanks, to be installed on the perimeter of the Joint Module during the missionís spacewalks, will support future spacewalk operations and experiments plus augment the resupply system for the Stationís Service Module.
