KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- During Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test activities, STS-110 Mission Specialist Rex Walheim has his launch and entry suit checked for fit. The TCDT is held at KSC prior to each Space Shuttle flight to provide flight crews an opportunity to participate in simulated launch countdown activities. Scheduled for launch April 4, the 11-day mission will feature Shuttle Atlantis docking with the International Space Station (ISS) and delivering the S0 truss, the centerpiece-segment of the primary truss structure that will eventually extend over 300 feet.

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. - After landing at the KSC Shuttle Landing Facility, STS-110 Mission Specialist Rex Walheim smiles in anticipation of his first Space Shuttle flight, scheduled for launch April 4. Mission STS-110 is the 13th assembly flight to the International Space Station. During four planned spacewalks, crew members will install the S0 Integrated Truss Structure (ITS), centerpiece of the orbiting International Space Station (ISS), at the center of the 10-truss, girderlike structure that will ultimately extend the length of a football field on the ISS. The S0 truss will be attached to the U.S. Lab, "Destiny," on the 11-day mission

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- Standing underneath the orbiter Atlantis in the Orbiter Processing Facility are STS-110 Commander Michael Bloomfield and Mission Specialists Steven Smith and Rex Walheim. They and other crew members are taking part in Crew Equipment Integration Test activities, which include familiarization with the vehicle and payload. The mission, 13th assembly flight to the International Space Station, includes the Integrated Truss Structure S0. The ITS S0 is the center segment on the Space Station, part of the 300-foot (91-meter) truss attached to the U.S. Lab. By assembly completion, four more truss segments will attach to either side of the S0 truss. STS-110 is scheduled to launch April 4, 2002

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- In the Orbiter Processing Facility, STS-122 Mission Specialist Rex Walheim reaches toward the wing of space shuttle Atlantis. The crew is at Kennedy to take part in a crew equipment interface test, or CEIT, which helps familiarize them with equipment and payloads for the mission. Among the activities standard to a CEIT are harness training, inspection of the thermal protection system and camera operation for planned extravehicular activities, or EVAs. STS-122 is targeted for launch in December. Photo credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- In the Orbiter Processing Facility, STS-122 Mission Specialist Rex Walheim practices working with equipment for the mission. In the background, at right, is European Space Agency astronaut Leopold Eyharts, who will be on the mission and joining the Expedition 16 crew as flight engineer on the International Space Station. The crew is at Kennedy Space Center to take part in a crew equipment interface test, which includes equipment familiarization. The mission will carry and install the Columbus Lab, a multifunctional, pressurized laboratory that will be permanently attached to Node 2 of the space station to carry out experiments in materials science, fluid physics and biosciences, as well as to perform a number of technological applications. It is Europe?s largest contribution to the construction of the International Space Station and will support scientific and technological research in a microgravity environment.
