Inside NASA Kennedy Space Center’s Orbiter Processing Facility Bay 1, workers get ready to lift the sling placed round the forward reaction control system that will be installed on Atlantis. The forward reaction control system is located in the forward fuselage nose area. During ascent of the space shuttle, it provides the thrust for attitude (rotational) maneuvers (pitch, yaw and roll) and for small velocity changes along the orbiter axis (translation maneuvers).
