KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- In the Space Station Processing Facility, STS-112 Pilot Pamela Melroy looks at equipment for the mission as part of the Crew Equipment Interface Test. Mission Specialist Sandra Magnus is behind her. Mission STS-112 will be ferrying the S1 truss to the International Space Station on its scheduled Aug. 22 flight. The S1 truss is the first starboard (right-side) truss segment, whose main job is providing structural support for the orbiting research facility's radiator panels that cool the Space Station's complex power system. The S1 truss segment also will house communications systems, external experiment positions and other subsystems. The S1 truss will be attached to the S0 truss. (Photo Release Date: 06/15/2002 )
