This video is an animation of the installation process for the Italian-made Multi-Purpose Logistics Module, including its removal from Endeavour's cargo bay through its mating to the nadir (Earth-facing) port on the Unity module.
MPEG Video Format (1.2 M)
This video provides the locations of the various payload items that will be carried within Endeavourís cargo bay during STS-100 including the Raffaello Multi-Purpose Logistics Module, the Spacelab Pallet with the Space Station Remote Manipulator System, the Direct Current Switching Unit (Critical Spare) and the IMAX Cargo Bay Camera.
MPEG Video Format (1.1 M)
This video is an animation of the first dual-robotic arm activity performed to deliver the Spacelab pallet back to Endeavourís cargo bay by first using the International Space Stationís newly installed robotic arm to deliver the pallet to the shuttleís robotic arm.
MPEG Video Format (2.7 M)
This video provides animations and actual video footage of a Multi-Purpose Logistics Module. This is the reusable module used to deliver and return items from the International Space Station.
MPEG Video Format (0.9 M)
This video is an animation of Endeavourís robotic arm removing the Raffaello Multi-Purpose Logistics Module from the International Space Station and returning it to the cargo bay.
MPEG Video Format (1.2 M)
This video provides animations of the Direct Current Switching Unit (Critical Spare) in the cargo bay of Space Shuttle Endeavour during STS-100.
MPEG Video Format (0.9 M)
This video is an animation of Endeavour undocking from the International Space Station, performing a fly around and then departing.
MPEG Video Format (1.5 M)
This video is an animation of the relocation of the currently docked Soyuz vehicle to prepare room for the upcoming STS-100 mission. To make room, the currently docked Progress module will be undocked and commanded to re-enter the Earthís atmosphere where it will burn up.
MPEG Video Format (2.7 M)
This video is an animation of the activity performed by Jeff Ashby who will power up the shuttle's robotic arm. Ashby, assisted by Umberto Guidoni, will use the shuttle arm to lift the pallet holding the station arm and the UHF antenna from the shuttle's cargo bay. He will then maneuver the pallet to latch to a cradle affixed to the station's Destiny lab.
MPEG Video Format (1.1 M)
This video is an animation of Space Shuttle Endeavour undocking and departing from the station followed by the arrival of the Soyuz taxi flight.
MPEG Video Format (0.7 M)
This video is an animation of the installation of the airlock during STS-104 (7A). The video shows the airlock being lifted out of Atlantis' cargo bay and being attached to the Unity Module.
MPEG Video Format (1.3 M)
This video is an animation of the Soyuz taxi crew departing in the old Soyuz spacecraft.
MPEG Video Format (1.3 M)
This video is an animation of the activity performed by Jeff Ashby who will power up the shuttle's robotic arm. Ashby, assisted by Umberto Guidoni, will use the shuttle arm to lift the pallet holding the station arm and the UHF antenna from the shuttle's cargo bay. He will then maneuver the pallet to latch to a cradle affixed to the station's Destiny lab. The video also includes animations of the initial testing of the arm by the Expedition Two crew.
MPEG Video Format (4.7 M)
This video is an animation of Space Shuttle Endeavour's rendezvous and docking with the International Space Station during STS-100. The main objective of STS-100 is to deliver the Space Station Remote Manipulator System.
MPEG Video Format (1.4 M)
This video is an animation of the activity performed by Jeff Ashby who will power up the shuttle's robotic arm, and assisted by Umberto Guidoni, will use it to lift the pallet holding the station arm and the UHF antenna from the shuttle's cargo bay. He will then maneuver the pallet to latch to a cradle affixed to the station's Destiny lab.
MPEG Video Format (1.6 M)
This video is an animation of activities performed inside the Destiny lab. Susan Helms and Jim Voss, assisted by Chris Hadfield and Scott Parazynski, will work at the control center for the newly attached station arm, powering it up and moving the Canadarm2 for the first time. They will maneuver the new arm, checking its operation and finally latching a free end to a fixture on the station's exterior. The other end will remain latched to a fixture on the pallet.
MPEG Video Format (2.3 M)
This video is an animation of activities to be performed during the first space walk of STS-100. The activities include attaching power and data cables from the Destiny laboratory module to the Spacelab Pallet to provide initial power for the Space Station Remote Manipulator Assembly (SSRM) and installation of the Ultra High Frequency antenna onto the Destiny Laboratory module. Once these activities are completed, the space walkers will turn their attention to activities necessary for the deployment of the SSRMS.
