This closeup of the replacement feed-through connector for the engine cutoff, or ECO, sensor system on space shuttle Atlantis shows the pins that were soldered at Kennedy. The feed-through connector passes the wires from the inside of the tank to the outside. Results of a tanking test on Dec. 18 pointed to an open circuit in the feed-through connector wiring, which is located at the base of the tank. The pins in the replacement connector have been precisely soldered to create a connection that allows sensors inside the tank to send signals to the computers onboard Atlantis. The work is being done on Launch Pad 39A. Space shuttle Atlantis is now targeted for launch on Feb. 7. Photo credit: NASA/George Shelton
