The Space Shuttle Columbia arrives at Launch Pad 39B, wrapping up a journey from the Vehicle Assembly Building that began shortly after 4 a.m. this morning. Once atop the hardstand, the Mobile Launcher Platform carrying Columbia will be installed and the Crawler-Transporter moved back down the incline. Already at the pad awaiting installation in Columbia's payload bay are the Wake Shield Facility-3 (WSF-3) and Orbiting and Retrievable Far and the Extreme Ultraviolet Spectrograph-Shuttle Pallet Satellite II (ORFEUS-SPAS II), the two primary payloads of Columbia's upcoming spaceflight. Columbia is scheduled to lift off on Mission STS-80 around Nov. 8. (Photo Release Date: 10/16/96 )
