[b]Discovery's Payload Arrives at the Launch Pad[/b]
The canister carrying the payload for space shuttle Discovery's STS-131 mission to the International Space Station made its way to Launch Pad 39A in the predawn darkness Friday morning, March 19, arriving at 2:51 a.m. EDT. The canister was installed in the pad's payload changeout room, and its contents, including the [i]Leonardo[/i] multi-purpose logistics module, is set to be transferred to Discovery's cargo bay on March 24.
During the weekend, crews at the pad are performing more tests on Discovery's right reaction control system helium regulators. Engineers will evaluate the data and discuss options Tuesday morning.
