KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- In the Space Station Processing Facility, members of the STS-92 crew get a close look at some of the equipment, such as the Integrated Truss Structure Z1, to fly on their mission. STS-92 is the fifth U.S. flight in the construction of the International Space Station. At right are Mission Specialists Leroy Chiao and William S. McArthur Jr. (pointing). Other crew members are Commander Brian Duffy, Pilot Pamela A. Melroy, and Mission Specialists Koichi Wakata, Peter J.K. Wisoff, and Michael E. Lopez-Alegria. Wakata is with the National Space Development Agency of Japan. The Z1 is an early exterior framework to allow the first U.S. solar arrays on a future flight to be temporarily installed on Unity for early power. Another part of the payload is a pressurized mating adapter, PMA-3, to provide a Shuttle docking port for solar array installation on the sixth ISS flight and Lab installation on the seventh ISS flight. Launch of STS-92 is scheduled for Sept. 21, 2000 KSC-00pp0593
