The orbiter Discovery has cleared the cross-beam into high bay 3 and is lowered next to the new External Tank, ET-121, and Solid Rocket Boosters in the bay for mating. After the remate, technicians will work final closeouts on the fully assembled Space Shuttle stack, and perform liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen electrical mates and an interface verification test.
