In the high bay of the Payload Hazardous Servicing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, three carriers are undergoing processing for space shuttle Atlantis' STS-125 mission to service the Hubble Space Telescope. From left are the Flight Support System or FSS, the Orbital Replacement Unit Carrier or ORUC, and the Super Lightweight Interchangeable Carrier or SLIC.
The Multi-Use Lightweight Equipment carrier will be delivered in early August. The carriers will be prepared for the integration of telescope science instruments, both internal and external replacement components, as well as the flight support equipment to be used by the astronauts during the Hubble servicing mission, targeted for launch Oct. 8.
