KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- In the Space Station Processing Facility, astronaut Dan Tani learns from a technician about the hardware on the table. The hardware will be flown on an upcoming shuttle flight. With construction of the Space Station the primary focus of future shuttle missions, astronaut crews will be working with one or more of the elements and hardware already being processed in the SSPF.

ISS016-S-002F (June 2007) --- This crew portrait shows the variety of crewmembers who will occupy the International Space Station during Expedition 16. Astronaut Peggy Whitson (front row, right), station commander; and Russia's Federal Space Agency cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko (front row, left), flight engineer and Soyuz commander, will join NASA astronaut Clay Anderson (back row, left), flight engineer, in October after launching from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on the Soyuz TMA-11 spacecraft. Anderson will be replaced in October by astronaut Dan Tani (back row, second from left), flight engineer, who will yield his place in December to Leopold Eyharts of the European Space Agency (back row, third from left). Eyharts will be replaced in February 2008 by astronaut Garrett Reisman (back row, far right), flight engineer. iss016-s-002f

ISS016-S-002C (June 2007) --- This crew portrait shows astronaut Peggy Whitson, expedition 16 commander, with Russia's Federal Space Agency cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko (right), flight engineer and Soyuz commander; and astronaut Dan Tani, flight engineer, who will arrive on the station in October to replace Clay Anderson. Anderson will have been aboard since June. Whitson and Malenchenko, two veterans of previous International Space Station flights, are scheduled to launch to the complex in the Soyuz TMA-11 spacecraft from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan in October for a six-month mission. iss016-s-002c

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. -- In the Orbiter Processing Facility bay 3, STS-120 crew members get a look at the main bus switching unit that is part of the payload on their mission. From left are Pilot George Zamka, Mission Specialists Scott Parazynski and Stephanie Wilson, astronaut Dan Tani, who will join the International Space Station crew, and Mission Specialists Paolo Nespoli, Doug Wheelock and Commander Pam Melroy. Nespoli represents the European Space Agency. A main bus switching unit is used for power distribution, circuit protection and fault isolation on the space station's power system. The units route power to proper locations in the space station, such as from solar arrays through umbilicals into the U.S. Lab. The unit will be installed on the external stowage platform 2 attached to the Quest airlock for temporary storage. Discovery is targeted to launch mission STS-120 no earlier than Oct. 20.
