In the Multi-Payload Processing Facility, the Orbiting and Retrievable Far and Extreme Ultraviolet Spectrograph-Shuttle Pallet Satellite (ORFEUS-SPAS) is just about ready for flight. The ORFEUS-SPAS and the other primary payload of Space Shuttle Mission STS-80, the Wake Shield Facility-3 (WSF-3), will make the trip to Launch Pad 39B together, with the transfer scheduled to occur on Oct. 11. There they will await the arrival of the Space Shuttle Columbia to be installed in the orbiter payload bay. Columbia is scheduled to lift off on Mission STS-80 around Nov. 8.
