In the Space Station Processing Facility, an overhead crane moves the Pressurized Mating Adapter-3 (PMA-3) to a payload canister for transport to the Orbiter Processing Facility. The PMA-3, a component of the International Space Station, is part of the payload on Space Shuttle mission STS-92, scheduled to launch Oct. 5. The mission will be the fifth flight to the Space Station, and the 100th Shuttle flight overall. PMA-3 provides the Shuttle docking port for solar array installation on flight 4A (mission STS-97, scheduled for Nov. 30) and Lab installation on flight 5A (mission STS-98), scheduled for Jan. 18, 2001.)
