KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. -- With workers keeping a close watch, the overhead crane lowers the high pressure gas assembly -- two gaseous oxygen and two gaseous nitrogen storage tanks – into the payload canister. The joint airlock module is already in the canister. The airlock and tanks are part of the payload on mission STS-104 and are being transferred to orbiter Atlantis’s payload bay. The storage tanks will be attached to the airlock during two spacewalks. The storage tanks will support future spacewalk operations from the Station and augment the Service Module gas resupply system. STS-104 is scheduled for launch June 14 from Launch Pad 39B.
