STS-101 Mission Specialist Mary Ellen Weber waves before climbing out of a T-38 jet aircraft at KSC's Shuttle Landing Facility. She and the rest of the crew will be preparing for the launch on May 18. The mission will take the crew of seven to the International Space Station, delivering logistics and supplies, plus preparing the Station for the arrival of the Zvezda Service Module, expected to be launched by Russia in July 2000. Also, the crew will conduct one space walk to perform maintenance on the Space Station. This will be the third assembly flight for the Space Station. STS-101 is targeted for liftoff at 6:38 a.m. EDT from Launch Pad 39A. (Photo Release Date: 05/14/2000 )
