"Atlantis" with a view of the forward reaction control system (RCS) with its covers one. The orbiter's reaction control system comprises the forward and aft RCS. The forward RCS is located in the forward fuselage nose area. The aft (right and left) RCS is located with the orbital maneuvering system in the OMS/RCS pods.The white blankets (seen here) coating the aircraft are made of coated Nomex felt reusable surface insulation. Due to prior space flight, they show the effects of heats and speed.
