In the Space Station Processing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, technicians check the bottom of a control moment gyroscope as it is lifted slowly by crane from a work stand. The gyroscope will be installed on an EXPRESS Logistics Carrier for flight. The carrier is part of the STS-129 payload on space shuttle Atlantis, which will deliver to the International Space Station 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. STS-129 is targeted to launch Nov. 12. Photo credit: NASA/Jim Grossmann
