A new multi-user materials science laboratory begins its journey to the International Space Station, leaving NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., for NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, Fla., for final flight preparations.

The Materials Science Research Rack or MSRR will allow for study of a variety of materials – including metals, ceramics, semiconductor crystals and glasses - aboard the orbiting laboratory. The space shuttle Atlantis is scheduled to deliver the MSRR on STS-128 planned for launch in July 2009. Upon arrival at the space station, the research rack will be housed in the U.S. Destiny Laboratory Module.
