Flight hardware for STS-107. a: Diagram showing plates strapped together using Nomex/nylon Velcro and placed inside anodized aluminum canisters with Teflon bumpers filing the void between the sides of the canisters and the plates. The box-shaped device on top of the strapped plates is a temperature logger. b: Photograph showing a flight canister with the lid removed. Note the autonomous temperature logger is shown in the lower left of the panel, and the Velcro strap is visible inside the canister. This photograph was taken prior to loading the canister. c: Photograph showing the flown canisters assembled into a tray that was placed in half of a space shuttle mid-deck locker.
