The new NASA video Science Launching on SpaceX's 23rd Cargo Resupply Mission to the Space Station a bit after 01:20 shows a large experimental apparatus which looks a bit like a pressure vessel inside a protective frame being pulled out from what looks like another pressure vessel's hatch flush with the side of an experimental area aboard the ISS.

Question: What is this complicated experimental apparatus being pulled out of another complicated apparatus inside the ISS?
