KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. -- Along with Scott Thurston (left), of the VITT office, members of the STS-98 crew – Mission Specialist Robert Curbeam, Commander Ken Cockrell and Mission Specialist Marsha Ivins – are in Atlantis’ payload bay to check out their mission payload, the U.S. Lab Destiny. The crew is at KSC for Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test activities, which also include a simulated launch countdown. A key element in the construction of the International Space Station, Destiny is a pressurized module designed to accommodate pressurized payloads. It has a capacity of 24 rack locations. Payload racks will occupy 13 locations especially designed to support experiments. The module already has five system racks installed inside. Launch of STS-98 on its 11-day mission is scheduled for Jan. 19 at 2:11 a.m. EST. (Photo Release Date: 01/06/2001 )
