Kennedy Space Center Processing of Life Science Payloads 941281

There are many steps involved in preparing a payload for a mission into space on the Space Shuttle. Operations at the John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC) are the last of those steps for the hardware before the payload is launched. To demonstrate those operations that deal with Life Science Payloads, this paper will discuss KSC processing of the Space Transportation System (STS) -58 Spacelab Life Sciences-2 (SLS-2) mission which was launched on the Space Shuttle Columbia, October 18, 1993 and landed at Edward's Air Force Base (EAFB) on November 1, 1993.
