STS-128 Payload Readied
In the Space Station Processing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, a crane lowers the Multi-Purpose Logistics Module Leonardo toward the payload canister.
The canister will transport the module to Launch Pad 39A for installation in space shuttle Discovery's payload bay for the STS-128 mission. The module will carry science and storage racks to the International Space Station.
