STS-77, to be launched this May, will be carrying as one of its primary
payloads the Spartan 207/Inflatable Antenna Experiment. The objective of
this, the eighth Spartan mission, is to deploy the largest inflatable
structure in space since Echo in the early 60's.

We have a description of the mission and the science, and some pictures =
the integration. We'll be adding stuff as we go along, including on-orbit
pictures near real-time during the mission.
