FEATURED IMAGE
Up Close with the Wing

STS-114 Crew looks at wing STS-114 Mission Specialist Charles Camarda, left, looks under the wing leading edge on Discovery while Mission Specialist Soichi Noguchi and Commander Eileen Collins look at an area on top. They and other crew members were visiting NASA's Kennedy Space Center for Crew Equipment Interface Test (CEIT) activities. The leading edge panels of the orbiters' wings have 22 Reinforced Carbon-Carbon panels, made entirely of carbon composite material. The molded components are approximately 0.25-inch to 0.5-inch thick. During CEIT, the crew has an opportunity to get a hands-on look at the orbiter and equipment they will be working with on the mission. Return to Flight Mission STS-114 will carry the Multi-Purpose Logistics Module Raffaello, filled with supplies for the International Space Station, and a replacement Control Moment Gyroscope.
