KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. -- Space Shuttle Atlantis reaches its destination, Launch Pad 39A, for liftoff no earlier than Jan. 19 on mission STS-98. To its immediate left is the Fixed Service Structure, with its 80-foot-tall white lighting mast on top. Further to the left is the Rotating Service Structure, where the white payload canister is being lifted to the Payload Changeout Room. The payload for the mission is the U.S. Lab Destiny, a key element in the construction of the International Space Station. The lab has five system racks for experiments already installed inside the module. After delivery of electronics in the lab, electrically powered attitude control for Control Moment Gyroscopes will be activated. (Photo Release Date: 01/03/2001 )
