Description

The Early Ammonia Servicer (EAS) was jettisoned from the International Space Station by astronaut Clay Anderson, Expedition 15 flight engineer, during an extravehicular activity (EVA). The EAS was installed on the P6 truss during STS-105 in August 2001, as an ammonia reservoir if a leak had occurred. It was never used, and was no longer needed after the permanent cooling system was activated last December.
