PMA-3

PMA-3

Byr2008
In October 2000 STS-92 brought PMA-3, mounted on a Spacelab pallet, to the station.[7] It was initially attached to the nadir (bottom, or Earth-facing) hatch of Unity. One and a half months later, when STS-97 delivered the P6 solar array truss structure, Endeavour docked at PMA-3.[8] Also, when STS-98 moved PMA-2 from Unity to Destiny, Atlantis was docked at PMA-3.[4] PMA-3 was moved in March 2001 to Unity's port hatch by the crew of STS-102 to make room for the docking of a Multi-Purpose Logistics Module (MPLM).[9] On August 30, 2007 PMA-3 was moved to the nadir hatch of Unity to make room for the temporary docking of the Harmony module that was delivered by STS-120.[10] Its final location will be the nadir hatch of Node 3 when this will be berthed to Unity, a configuration scheduled for 2010. While Node 3 is being added to ISS, PMA-3 will be temporarily docked to the nadir port of Harmony #iss_modules
