STS-88 Mission Specialist Nancy J. Currie (left) gets a hug of camaraderie from Commander Robert D. Cabana after their landing on Runway 15 at 10:53:29 p.m. EST aboard orbiter Endeavour. Also aboard were Pilot Frederick W. "Rick" Sturckow and Mission Specialists Jerry L. Ross, James H. Newman and Sergei Konstantinovich Krikalev, a Russian cosmonaut. On the 4.6-million-mile, nearly 12-day flawless mission, Endeavour carried the U.S.-built Unity connecting module to begin construction of the International Space Station. The crew successfully mated Unity with the Russian-built Zarya control module during three space walks. With this mission, Ross completed seven space walks totaling 44 hours and 9 minutes, more than any other American space walker. Newman moved into third place for U.S. space walks with a total of 28 hours and 27 minutes on four excursions. (Photo Release Date: 12/15/98 )
