Something I've not seen a good image of is where astronauts leave the middeck into the airlock for EVA work. Is there an image of this 'hatch'?

Here is another NASA pic that shows where the hatch is located in the aft mid deck...this is with the external airlock configuration that is now standard.

This was taken during egress training in one of the Mockups at the Johnson Space Center.

Here's another question I have:
What is the black stripes on the RMS end effector used for? Is it an visual indicator of some sort?

This thread is now locked (as it's so long, it's starting to have a few errors when new pages start with new posts).

Move all questions to here:

How was that airlock moved from the Internal to External configuration?

Even if it came apart, that seems to be a very unwieldy piece of metal to pass through the crew cabin pressure hull!

Please head to Shuttle Q and A (2).
