In Orbiter Processing Facility-2 at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, technicians help guide a large crane as it lowers the forward reaction control system (FRCS) for installation on space shuttle Endeavour.
The work is part of the Space Shuttle Program transition and retirement processing of Endeavour. The FRCS helped maneuver a shuttle while it was in orbit. The FRCS was removed from Endeavour and sent to White Sands Test Facility in N.M. to be cleaned of its toxic propellants. Endeavour is being prepared for display at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. Photo credit: NASA/Dimitri Gerondidakis
