The first one is not the Cupola

The second are not boxes but protective shields (see the small window in the center) used for protecting personnel when pressurizing systems

Thanks. That's one of them explained!  :)

I've been having a look at the CMG pics and now I'm pretty sure it's the one seen in the first image. See:

So Raffaello & Donatello are not in the O&C anymore. What is MPPF?

Thanks Jim. So has all the stuff from the O&C been moved to the MPPF or does it already have the equipment needed in there?  :)

The MPLM's are just sitting in their shipping stands.  There is no real work going on in the MPPF, just storage.  All the stuff in the O&C has been excessed.

Nice empty building there, Jim. Would be nice to see some CEV equipment in there. Hopefully soon.

Thanks. That's what really annoys me with the webcams because at the bottom of each one its either LC-39A or SSPF! :angry:

I have a question about the MPLMs (specifically Leonardo pictured in the SSPF above):


How come the hatch on Leonardo looks so big? Is it becuase they remove the CBM to take out equipment returned from the shuttle flights?

Thanks.
