An Airbus “Beluga” air cargo plane, The Super Transporter, arrives at KSC’s Shuttle Landing Facility from the factory of Alenia Aerospazio in Turin, Italy. Its cargo is the Italian Space Agency’s Multi-Purpose Logistics Module Donatello, the third of three for the International Space Station. The module will be transported to the Space Station Processing Facility for processing. Among the activities for the payload test team are integrated electrical tests with other Station elements in the SSPF, leak tests, electrical and software compatibility tests with the Space Shuttle (using the Cargo Integrated Test equipment) and an Interface Verification Test once the module is installed in the Space Shuttle’s payload bay at the launch pad. The most significant mechanical task to be performed on Donatello in the SSPF is the installation and outfitting of the racks for carrying the various experiments and cargo KSC01pp0232

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. - The Cupola, an element scheduled to be installed on the International Space Station in early 2009, sits uncrated inside the Space Station Processing Facility after its delivery from Turin, Italy. A dome-shaped module with seven windows, the Cupola will give astronauts a panoramic view for observing many operations on the outside of the orbiting complex.  The view out of the Cupola windows will enhance an arm operator's situational awareness, supplementing television camera views and graphics.  It will provide external observation capabilities during spacewalks, docking operations and hardware surveys and for Earth and celestial studies. The Cupola is the final element of the Space Station core. KSC-04pd2101

He is assisted by Boeing technician Terry Camarata, left. The RWS is provided by the Canadian Space Agency.  The module was delivered by the European Space Agency in 2004 to Kennedy from Alenia Spazio in Turin, Italy.  Cupola will provide unprecedented views of activities outside the station and spectacular views of the Earth.  Crew members working inside the module will have a 360-degree panoramic view.  Cupola has the capability for command and control workstations to be installed to assist in space station remote manipulator system and extra vehicular activities.  Cupola is the final element of the space station core and is scheduled for launch on space shuttle Endeavour's STS-130 mission, targeted for Dec. 10, 2009.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – In the Space Station Processing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, astronauts Terry Virts, left, and Charles Hobaugh familiarize themselves with the placement and operation of the robotic workstation, or RWS, in the International Space Station's Cupola module. The RWS is provided by the Canadian Space Agency.  The module was delivered by the European Space Agency in 2004 to Kennedy from Alenia Spazio in Turin, Italy.  Cupola will provide unprecedented views of activities outside the station and spectacular views of the Earth.  Crew members working inside the module will have a 360-degree panoramic view.  Cupola has the capability for command and control workstations to be installed to assist in space station remote manipulator system and extra vehicular activities.  Cupola is the final element of the space station core and is scheduled for launch on space shuttle Endeavour's STS-130 mission, targeted for Dec. 10, 2009.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – In the Space Station Processing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida,  NASA's Cupola module, at left, aligns with the Tranquility module, at right.  Cupola and Tranquility are the payload for space shuttle Endeavour's STS-130 mission to the International Space Station.  The module was built for the European Space Agency by Alenia Spazio in Turin, Italy. When attached to the Tranquility Node 3 module, Cupola will resemble a circular bay window that will provide a vastly improved view of the station's exterior. Just under 10 feet in diameter, the module will accommodate two crew members and portable workstations that can control station and robotic activities. The multi-directional view will allow the crew to monitor spacewalks and docking operations, as well as provide a spectacular view of Earth and other celestial objects.
