S134-E-007141 (18 May 2011) --- In the grasp of space shuttle Endeavour's robotic Canadarm, the Express Logistics Carrier-3 (ELC-3) is transferred from Endeavour's payload bay for hand off to the International Space Station's Canadarm2 to be installed on the left side of the station's truss structure. ELC-3 holds spare hardware for future station use, including an ammonia tank, a high pressure gas tank, a cargo transport container, two S-band antenna assemblies and a spare arm for DEXTRE, the Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator.
