KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. The International Extreme Ultraviolet Hitchhiker-3 (IEH-3), one of the payloads for the STS-95 mission, is prepared for launch in the Multi-Payload Processing Facility. IEH-3 is comprised of seven experiments, including one that will be deployed on Flight Day 3. It is the small, non-recoverable Petite Amateur Navy Satellite (PANSAT) which will store and transmit digital communications. Other IEH investigations are the Solar Constant Experiment (SOLCON), Solar Extreme Ultraviolet Hitchhiker (SEH), Spectrograph/Telescope for Astronomical Research (STAR-LITE), Ultraviolet Spectrograph Telescope for Astronomical Research (UVSTAR), Consortium for Materials Development in Space Complex Autonomous Payloads (CONCAP-IV) for growing thin films via physical vapor transport, and two Get-Away Special (GAS) canister experiments. The experiments will be mounted on a hitchhiker bridge in Discovery's payload bay
