Crew members of mission STS-124 are in the Space Station Processing Facility to look over equipment. Here Mission Specialist Michael Fossum gets hands-on experience with a piece of hardware. Other crew members are Commander Mark Kelly, Pilot Kenneth Ham, and Mission Specialists Karen Nyberg, Ronald Garan, Stephen Bowen and Akihiko Hoshide, who represents the Japanese Aerospace and Exploration Agency. The STS-124 mission is the second of three flights that will launch components to complete the Japanese pressurized module, the Kibo laboratory. The mission will include two spacewalks to install the new lab and its remote manipulator system. The lab's logistics module, which will have been installed in a temporary location during STS-123, will be attached to the new lab. The mission is scheduled to launch in 2008.
