KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- The STS-112 crew gathers in front of structures in the Space Station Processing Facility where they have been looking over part of the payload as part of the Crew Equipment Interface Test activities. From left are Commander Jeffrey Ashby, Pilot Pamela Melroy and Mission Specialists Sandra Magnus, David Wolf, Piers Sellers and Fyodor Yurchikhin, who is with the Russian Space Agency. The S1 truss is the first starboard (right-side) truss segment for the International Space Station, whose main job is providing structural support for the orbiting research facility's radiator panels that cool the Station's complex power system. The S1 truss segment also will house communications systems, external experiment positions and other sub systems. The S1 truss will be attached to the S0 truss. Launch of STS-112 is scheduled for Aug. 22, 2002 (Photo Release Date: 06/15/2002 )
