In the Vehicle Assembly Building at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Payton Jones, an aerospace senior technician with United Space Alliance, stands on E platform on the 14th floor of high bay 3 as he monitors the external tank being lowered and leveled between the solid rocket boosters and platforms. The tank and rockets will be mated for the launch of Discovery on the STS-124 mission to the International Space Station, targeted for May 31. On the mission, Discovery will transport the Kibo Japanese Experiment Module - Pressurized Module (JEM-PM) and the Japanese Remote Manipulator System (JEM-RMS) to the space station to add to the Kibo laboratory.
