Workers watch as the Hubble Space Telescope Orbiting Systems Test (HOST)is lowered onto a workstand in the Space Shuttle Processing Facility. To the right can be seen the Rack Insertion Device and Leonardo, a Multi-Purpose Logistics Module. The HOST platform, one of the payloads on the STS-95 mission, is carrying four experiments to validate components planned for installation during the third Hubble Space Telescope servicing mission and to evaluate new technologies in an earth orbiting environment. The STS-95 mission is scheduled to launch Oct. 29. It will carry three other payloads: the Spartan solar-observing deployable spacecraft, the International Extreme Ultraviolet Hitchhiker, and the SPACEHAB single module with experiments on space flight and the aging process.
