Columbus space laboratory in the integration hall at EADS Space Transportation in Bremen. In 1996, the European Space Agency ESA commissioned EADS SPACE Transportation to develop and integrate the Columbus space laboratory, the European contribution to the International Space Station. The eight-metre-long laboratory contains standardised payload racks, in which experiment equipment can be accommodated. The module has sufficient space for three crew members to work in.
