EASE/ACCESS
Part of Shuttle Attached Payloads Family
Experimental Assembly of Structures in EVA and the Assembly Concept for Construction of Erectable Space Structures (EASE/ACCESS), a pair of space shuttle experiments on STS-61-B. The experiments studied how quickly astronauts would become proficient at assembling space structures during extravehicular activity, how quickly they would become fatigued, and to explore various construction and maintenance techniques. The EASE structure consisted of six 29-kg aluminum beams which were assembled into a 3.7 m tetrahedral truss structure. ACCESS consisted of 93 struts which were assembled into a triangular tower.
