STS-82 crew members handle hardware for the second Hubble Space Telescope (HST) servicing mission as part of the crew familiarization prelaunch activities at KSCs Vertical Processing Facility (VPF). Payload Commander Mark C. Lee, facing camera at center, has his gloved hand on the latch for the Multipurpose ORU (Orbital Replacement Unit) Protective Enclosure, known by the acronym MOPE. Watching him are STS-82 Mission Specialists Joseph R. "Joe" Tanner, to Lees right, and Gregory J. Harbaugh, second from right, as well as HST technicians and other workers. Lee, Tanner and Harbaugh, along with fellow Mission Specialist Steven L. Smith, will perform the spacewalks required for servicing and repair of HST, which was deployed nearly seven years ago and first serviced in 1993. STS-82 is targeted for a mid-February liftoff on the Space Shuttle Discovery. (Photo Release Date: mm/dd/yy )
