STS068-272-075 (30 September-11 October 1994) --- The darkness of space forms the backdrop for this scene of the Space Shuttle Endeavour's cargo bay, 115 nautical miles above a cloud covered Indian Ocean. The Space Radar Laboratory (SRL-2) Multipurpose Experiment Support Structure (MPESS) is seen at bottom frame. Also partially seen are other experiments including other components of the primary payload. They are the antenna for the Spaceborne Imaging Radar (SIR-C), the X-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (X-SAR), the device for Measurement of Air Pollution from Satellites (MAPS) and some Getaway Special (GAS) canisters.
