In the Payload Changeout Room (part of the Rotating Service Structure at the launch pad), the doors of the payload canister open to reveal its cargo, the SPACEHAB module (bottom) and Integrated Cargo Carrier (top). The payload will be transferred from this environmentally controlled room into the payload bay of Shuttle Atlantis for mission STS-106. The 11-day mission to the International Space Station will include service module support tasks on orbit, transfer supplies and outfit the Space Station for the first long-duration crew. Atlantis is scheduled to launch Sept. 8 at 8:31 a.m. EDT
