In the Orbiter Processing Facility, United Space Alliance workers Ross Neubarth and Paul Ogletree (foreground, left and right) look at the monitor for results of thermography on Discovery’s nose cap. Behind them is Ken Tauer. Thermography is one type of inspection to verify integrity of hardware before flight. This procedure uses high intensity light to heat areas that are immediately scanned with an infrared camera to check for internal flaws. Discovery is the vehicle assigned to the Return to Flight mission, STS-114.
