S73-27384 (June 1973) --- A close-up view of the surgical band saw, a surgical tool in the therapeutic kit of the Inflight Medical Support System aboard the Skylab 1 & 2 space station cluster now in Earth orbit. Since this instrument can cut through metal (as illustrated here), it can be used in making emergency maintenance repairs aboard the space station. Photo credit: NASA
