In the Space Station Processing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, a worker monitors the lift of the Express Logistics Carrier-1, or ELC-1, from its work stand. Next, the payload will be secured in a transportation canister for its trip to Launch Pad 39A, where it will be installed in space shuttle Atlantis' payload bay.

The carrier is part of the payload for Atlantis' STS-129 mission to the International Space Station. The STS-129 crew will deliver two spare gyroscopes, two nitrogen tank assemblies, two pump modules, an ammonia tank assembly and a spare latching end effector for the station's robotic arm. Launch is targeted for Nov. 16. For information on the STS-129 mission objectives and crew, visit http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/shuttle/shuttlemissions/sts129/index.html.
