Detail View: NASA Kennedy Center Media Archive Collection: KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. -- In the Space Station Processing Facility under the gaze of a worker (far right), the Expedition Three crew look over an Electronic Control Unit. From left are Commander Frank Culbertson and cosmonauts Mikhail Tyurin and Vladimir Dezhurov. The STS-105 mission payload includes the Early Ammonia Servicer (EAS), Multi-Purpose Logistics Module Leonardo and various experiments attached on the port and starboard adapter beams. The EAS contains spare ammonia for the Station?s cooling system. Ammonia is the fluid used in the radiators that cool the Station?s electronics. The EAS will be installed on the P6 truss holding the giant U.S. solar arrays, batteries and cooling radiators. Leonardo is filled with laboratory racks of science equipment and racks and platforms of experiments and supplies. Discovery is scheduled to be launched Aug. 9, 2001
