Detail View: NASA Kennedy Center Media Archive Collection: During a Crew Equipment Interface Test (CEIT) in the payload bay of Discovery, STS-95 Mission Specialist Stephen K. Robinson uses a tethered tool to loosen a bolt on the Canadian robot arm, the Remote Manipulator System, while Mission Specialist Pedro Duque, of the European Space Agency, watches. At right is Keith Johnson, United Space Alliance-Houston. The CEIT gives astronauts an opportunity for a hands-on look at the payloads and equipment with which they will be working on orbit. The launch of the STS-95 mission is scheduled for Oct. 29, 1998. The mission includes research payloads such as the Spartan solar-observing deployable spacecraft, the Hubble Space Telescope Orbital Systems Test Platform, the International Extreme Ultraviolet Hitchhiker, as well as the SPACEHAB single module with experiments on space flight and the aging process
