STS-79 Mission Specialists Carl E. Walz (left) and Jay Apt examine the interior of the double SPACEHAB undergoing preflight preparation at the SPACEHAB processing facility near Port Canaveral. The double module configuration will allow a great deal of equipment and supplies to be flown up to the Russian Space Station Mir during the fourth Shuttle-Mir docking. Altogether 4,600 pounds (2,087 kilograms) of supplies are going up to Mir and 2,100 pounds (953 kilograms) will be brought back. Multiple stowage bags are clearly visible at left and on the floor, along with a Russian gyrodyne at right. Also located in the SPACEHAB will be science experiments and receptacles for storing samples scheduled to be brought back from Mir. (Photo Release Date: 06/19/1996 )
