    The original finding aid described this as: Description: The Gamma Ray Observatory (GRO) with its solar array (SA) panels deployed is grappled by the remote manipulator system (RMS) and held over Atlantis', Orbiter Vehicle (OV) 104's, payload bay (PLB) during systems checkout. GRO's four complement instruments are visible: the Energetic Gamma Ray Experiment Telescope (EGRET) (at the bottom); the Imaging Compton Telescope (COMPTEL) (center); the Oriented Scintillation Spectrometer Experiment (OSSE) (top); and Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) (on four corners). This view taken by the STS-37 crew shows the GRO backdropped against clouds over water on the Earth's surface. Image 098 was selected by the Public Affairs Office (PAO) for public release.
