On Launch Pad 39A, workers check out the loading of the payloads into Discovery’s payload bay. In the center is the Multi-Purpose Logistics Module Leonardo, filled with laboratory racks of science equipment and racks and platforms of experiments and supplies. Above Leonardo is the Integrated Cargo Carrier with the Early Ammonia Servicer (EAS) in the center. The EAS contains spare ammonia for the Station’s cooling system. Ammonia is the fluid used in the radiators that cool the Station’s electronics. The EAS will be installed on the P6 truss holding the giant U.S. solar arrays, batteries and cooling radiators. Seen below the MPLM and attached on the port and starboard adapter beams are experiments. Discovery is scheduled to be launched Aug. 9, 2001
