Against a cloudless blue sky, Space Shuttle Endeavour stands ready for launch after the rollback of the Rotating Service Structure, at left. Endeavour is targeted for launch tonight at about 10:06 p.m. EST on mission STS-97 to the International Space Station. The orbiter carries the P6 Integrated Truss Segment containing solar arrays that will be temporarily installed to the Unity connecting module by the Z1 truss, recently delivered to and installed on the Station on mission STS-92. The two solar arrays are each more than 100 feet long. They will capture energy from the sun and convert it to power for the Station. Two spacewalks will be required to install the solar array connections. (Photo Release Date: 11/30/2000 )
