The transporter with the payload canister arrives under the rotating service structure, or RSS, on Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The canister will be lifted up into the Payload Changeout Room above. Inside the canister is space shuttle Endeavour's payload for the STS-127 mission, which includes the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's Kibo Exposed Facility and the Experiment Logistics Module Exposed Section to the International Space Station. They will be installed on the Kibo laboratory on the station. Launch of Endeavour is targeted for June 13. Photo credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett
