佛罗里达州卡纳维拉尔角(CAPE CANAVERAL)——在佛罗里达州肯尼迪航天中心39A发射台上,亚特兰蒂斯号航天飞机的有效载荷舱装满了STS-125任务的硬件,为美国宇航局哈勃太空望远镜提供服务。底部是带有软捕获机制的飞行支持系统。在中心是轨道替换单位载体与宇宙起源光谱仪,或COS,和一个IMAX三维相机。顶部是超轻可互换载体与广域相机3。亚特兰蒂斯号的宇航员将为美国宇航局哈勃太空望远镜提供第五次也是最后一次服务。这次飞行将包括五次太空行走,宇航员将在其间用最先进的科学仪器翻新和升级望远镜。因此,哈勃的能力将得到扩展,其运行寿命将至少延长到2014年。图片来源:美国航天局/金希利特

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – On Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, space shuttle Atlantis' payload bay is filled with hardware for the STS-125 mission to service NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. At the bottom is the Flight Support System with the Soft Capture mechanism. At center is the Orbital Replacement Unit Carrier with the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph, or COS, and an IMAX 3D camera. At top is the Super Lightweight Interchangeable Carrier with the Wide Field Camera 3. Atlantis' crew will service NASA's Hubble Space Telescope for the fifth and final time. The flight will include five spacewalks during which astronauts will refurbish and upgrade the telescope with state-of-the-art science instruments. As a result, Hubble's capabilities will be expanded and its operational lifespan extended through at least 2014. Photo credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett
