Title: Personnel in Mission Control examine replica of spider habitat from Skylab 3
Description:
Flight Director Neil B. Hutchinson, left, and Astronaut Bruce McCandless II 
hold up a glass enclosure - home for the spider Arachne, which is the same 
species as the two spiders carried on the Skylab 3 mission. The real spider 
is the one barely visible at the upper right corner of the square; the
larger  one is a projected image on the rear-screen-projected map in the
front of the  Mission Operations Control Room (MOCR) of the Mission Control
Center (MCC).  McCandless served as backup pilot for the first manned
Skylab mission and was  a spacecraft-communicater (CAPCOM) for the second
crew.
