An overhead crane carries the European Columbus laboratory towards a work stand in the Space Station Processing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The Columbus laboratory is ESA's biggest contribution to the International Space Station. Delivered to ESA by EADS SPACE Transportation on 2 May 2006, this laboratory will provide internal payload accommodation for various scientific experiments. The Columbus laboratory will be flown on a Space Shuttle to the ISS in the second half of 2007.
