At Astrotech, Titusville, Fla., checking the International Cargo Carrier that will be used during future International Space Station (ISS) assembly missions are (left to right) Manfred Nordhoff, with Daimler-Chrysler Aerospace (DASA); Lora Lawrence, with Johnson Space Center; Robert Wilkes, with Lockheed Martin; and (below) Harald Schnier, with DASA. The ICC fits inside the payload bay of the orbiter. The ICC will carry the SPACEHAB Oceaneering Space System Box (SHOSS), a logistics items carrier. SHOSS can hold a maximum of 400 pounds of equipment and will carry items to be used during STS-96 and future ISS assembly flights. Also aboard the ICC will be the ORU Transfer Device (OTD), a U.S.-built crane that will be stowed on Unity for use during future ISS assembly missions. The ICC will fly on mission STS-96, targeted for launch on May 20. (Photo Release Date: 02/25/1999 )
