STS-88 Mission Specialist Sergei Konstantinovich Krikalev gets assistance from suit technician George Brittingham while donning his orange launch and entry suit in the Operations and Checkout Building. STS-88 will be Krikalev's fourth spaceflight, but only his second on the Space Shuttle. He also twice flew on long-duration missions aboard the Russian Space Station Mir. Krikalev and the five other STS-88 crew members will depart shortly for Launch Pad 39A where the Space Shuttle Endeavour is poised for liftoff on the first U.S. mission dedicated to the assembly of the International Space Station.
