STS-82 Mission Specialist Steven A. Hawley stands beside part of Discovery's Remote Manipulator System (RMS) arm, at right, which he will operate for the capture, berthing and redeployment of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). The robotic arm also will be used as work platform for the four spacewalkers. Hawley is the prime RMS operator on the flight, which will be the second HST servicing mission. He and the other six members of the crew are making a final inspection of the payload at Launch Pad 39A before launch. STS-82 is scheduled for liftoff on Feb. 11 during a 65-minute launch window which opens at 3:56 a.m. EST. (Photo Release Date: 02/07/97 )
