Photo Gallery: Atlantis receives mission payloads

Inside the cleanrooom at Kennedy Space Center's launch pad 39A, the ground-handling mechanism inserts the Italian-made Raffaello cargo module and the aft carrier structure into space shuttle Atlantis' payload bay. The module is loaded with several tons of food, spare parts and provisions for the International Space Station while the cross-bay carrier holds a robotic refueling experiment for delivery to the outpost. It will support a failed coolant pump being brought back to Earth from the station. Photos: NASA-KSC
