S97-E-0005 In KSC's Vertical Processing Facility (VPF), the STS-82 crew members familiarize themselves with some of the hardware they will be handling on the second servicing mission to the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). Looking over the Flight Support System (FSS) Berthing and Positioning System (BAPS) ring are astronauts Joseph R. Tanner (far left), Mark C. Lee (third left) and Gregory J. Harbaugh (fourth left); along with several HST processing team members. Tanner, Lee and Harbaugh, along with Steven L. Smith, will perform spacewalks required for servicing of the HST. The telescope was deployed nearly seven years ago and was initially serviced in 1993.
