Spacelab Pallet 'Elvis' in Shuttle cargo bay during Eureca and TSS-1 deployment, 31 July 1992.
STS-46 European Retrievable Carrier 1L (Eureca-1L) satellite with solar arrays extended, is grappled by the remote manipulator system end effector and is positioned above the payload bay of Atlantis during pre-deployment activities. In the foreground, the IMAX Cargo Bay Camera mounted on Small Payloads Accomodations 'getaway special' beam interface appears on the starboard wall and the stowed Tethered Satellite System 1 (TSS-1) mounted in the satellite support assembly on the unpressurised spacelab pallet (centre). The scene is backdropped by Earth's limb. A 16mm lens gives this 35mm frame a 'fish-eye' effect.
