In the Orbiter Processing Facility bay 2, members of the STS-100 crew look over the payload in Endeavour during a Crew Equipment Interface Test (CEIT) at KSC. Lowered into the payload bay, they are looking at the Canadian robotic arm, SSRMS. The crew comprises Commander Kent V. Rominger, Pilot Jeffrey S. Ashby and Mission Specialists Chris Hadfield, who is with the Canadian Space Agency, Scott Parazynski, John L. Phillips, Umberto Guidoni, who is with the European Space Agency, and Yuri Lonchakov, who is with the Russian Aviation and Space Agency. The orbiter is also carrying the Multi-Purpose Logistics Module Raffaello to the International Space Station. Raffaello carries six system racks and two storage racks for the U.S. Lab. The SSRMS will be attached to the Space Station to aid in assembling future components. Launch of mission STS-100 is scheduled for April 19 at 2:41 p.m. EDT from Launch Pad 39A
