    The original finding aid described this as: Description: STS-35 Astronomy Laboratory 1 (ASTRO-1) telescopes, in onorbit operating configuration, are documented in the payload bay (PLB) of Columbia, Orbiter Vehicle (OV) 102. To the right of the ASTRO-1 components is the Orion nebula. Three ultraviolet telescopes are mounted and precisely co-aligned on a common structure, called the cruciform, that is attached to the instrument pointing system (IPS). Visible here are the star tracker (S TRK) (silver cone at the far left), the Hopkins Ultraviolet Telescope (HUT), and the Wisconsin Ultraviolet Photo-Polarimeter Experiment (WUPPE) (at top right). Subject Terms: STS-35, COLUMBIA (ORBITER), ASTRO MISSIONS (STS), INSTRUMENT ORIENTATION, PAYLOADS, POSITIONING, SPACEBORNE ASTRONOMY, ULTRAVIOLET TELESCOPES, ORION CONSTELLATION Categories: Payloads Interior_Exterior: Exterior Ground_Orbit: On-orbit Original: Film - 35MM CN Preservation File Format: TIFF. less
