KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. -- In the Space Station Processing Facility, the "key" to the U.S. Laboratory Destiny is officially handed over to NASA during a brief ceremony while workers look on. Suspended overhead is the laboratory, being moved to the Launch Package Integration Stand (LPIS) for a weight and center of gravity determination. Behind the workers at left is the Joint Airlock Module. Destiny is the payload aboard Space Shuttle Atlantis on mission STS-98 to the International Space Station. The lab is fitted with five system racks and will already have experiments installed inside for the flight. The launch is scheduled for January 2001. (Photo Release Date: 12/21/2000 )
