Photos: NASA re-enters retired shuttles to remove water tanks for space station
[i]New behind-the-scenes photos reveal how the water storage tanks that were installed deep inside NASA's retired space shuttles Atlantis and Endeavour were recently removed by the space agency for future use onboard the International Space Station.
The photographs, which were shared with collectSPACE by NASA workers at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and by the manager for Endeavour's display at the California Science Center in Los Angeles, show how the three-foot-long (0.9 meter) tanks were accessed under the floor of the orbiters' crew cabins and were then extracted through different hatches on each vehicle.[/i]
