The space shuttle Atlantis astronauts visited Kennedy Space Center on Thursday and Friday for up-close and personal interaction with the orbiter in its hangar and the payloads being readied for flight at the Space Station Processing Facility. Atlantis will carry the Raffaello cargo module and a cross-bay support truss with an in-space refueling experiment to the International Space Station. The four-person crew is led by commander Chris Ferguson, with pilot Doug Hurley and mission specialists Sandy Magnus and Rex Walheim.
