Description

The airlock connects the mid-deck of the space shuttle with the cargo bay and the International Space Station (ISS). It is also the preparation area for extra-vehicular activities (EVA), otherwise known as spacewalks. During launch and reentry, the cylindrical airlock is used to store the bulky and heavy space suits used for EVAs.

Photographer: Susan Poulton
