Connections (Shuttle)

This is where the Shuttle connects to the External Tank. The fuel from the external tank is routed to the engines at the rear of the Shuttle. Imagine the amount of fuel passing thru the couplings per second to get the space craft off the launch pad. The two pronged connectors are (I guess) are for electrical connections between the spacecraft and its fuel source.
