    Soon after the shuttle reaches orbit, Hauck opens the cargo bay doors to expose three satellites. Ride and Fabian open a sunshade protecting the first satellite to be released. Then they start the satellite spinning like a merry-go-round. Spinning will keep it from getting "sunburned" on one side or the other. Then they release the satellite, which fires its own little booster to reach a higher orbit.
