At SPACEHAB, Port Canaveral, Fla., members of the STS-106 crew check out part of the payload, called TVIS, on their mission to the International Space Station. From left are Mission Specialist Boris Morukov, who is with the Russian Space Agency, Pilot Scott Altman and Mission Specialist Edward Lu. TVIS is the Treadmill Vibration Isolation System, a device to collect data on how vibrations imparted by crew exercise may be reduced or eliminated on the International Space Station. Those vibrations could disturb delicate microgravity experiments on the Space Station. During the mission, the crew will complete service module support tasks on orbit, transfer supplies and outfit the Space Station for the first long-duration crew. STS-106 is scheduled to launch Sept. 8
