    Just my guess
    And this "air" needs to get svcked out of the shuttle because ????????

    If I remember, they are used to removed the various rocket fuels and such from the shuttle - it's highly toxic stuff and needs to be drained.

    OK. After the shuttle lands, it is then serviced. Anyhow, what are those cables and things dangling from the shuttle as seen in this pic? ie purpose?

    Thanks!
