KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -  This closeup shows Space Shuttle Atlantis as it begins rolling out of the Vehicle Assembly Building on its slow trek to the launch pad.  Below Atlantis' wings are the Tail Service Masts on the Mobile Launcher Platform. Atlantis is scheduled for launch April 4 on mission STS-110, which will install the S0 truss, the framework that eventually will hold the power and cooling systems needed for future international research laboratories on the International Space Station.  The  Canadarm2 robotic arm will be used exclusively to hoist the 13-ton truss from the payload bay to the Station.  The S0 truss will be the first major U.S. component launched to the Station since the addition of the Quest airlock in July 2001.  The four spacewalks planned for the construction will all originate from the airlock.  The mission will be Atlantis' 25th trip to space KSC-02pd0271

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- The STS-111 crew looks at the replacement pitch roll joint for the SSRMS (Canadarm 2) they will be installing on the mission to the International Space Station.  The crew comprises Commander Kenneth Cockrell, Pilot Paul Lockhart, and Mission Specialists Franklin Chang-Diaz and Phillippe Perrin, who is with the French Space Agency.  Part of the payload on mission STS-111 is the Mobile Base System (MBS), which will be installed on the Mobile Transporter to complete the Canadian Mobile Servicing System, or MSS. The mechanical arm will then have the capability to "inchworm" from the U.S. Lab Destiny to the MSS and travel along the truss to work sites.  STS-111 is the second utilization flight (UF-2) to the Space Station and will also carry the Expedition 5 crew to replace Expedition 4.  Launch is scheduled for May 30, 2002 KSC-02pd0555
