The crew of STS-102, plus Expedition Two astronauts, poses in front of Leonardo, the Multi-Purpose Logistics Module that will fly on the mission. From left are Susan Helms and James Voss, part of Expedition Two; Mission Specialists Paul W. Richards and Andrew S.W. Thomas; Pilot James M. Kelly; and Commander James D. Wetherbee. Not shown is cosmonaut Yuri Usachev, who is also part of Expedition Two. The MPLM is the first of three such pressurized modules that will serve as the International Space Station’s “moving vans,” carrying laboratory racks filled with equipment, experiments and supplies to and from the Space Station aboard the Space Shuttle. Leonardo will be launched March 1, 2001, on Shuttle mission STS-102. On that flight, Leonardo will be filled with equipment and supplies to outfit the U.S. laboratory module Destiny. The mission will also be carrying the Expedition Two crew to the Space Station, replacing the Expedition One crew who will return on Shuttle Discovery
