Payload Bay

Payload Bay
Atlantis' payload bay, being reconfigured for its next flight. The red tubes on either side are the robot arm and the new extension boom used for on-orbit inspection of the thermal protection system. The silver trapezoidal shapes just below the arm/boom are sill plates, used for mounting payload latches.

I saw Atlantis' payload bay twice (here, and in the depot in Palmdale during an overhaul), both times through plastic film like this.
