  Title: STS-27 crewmembers perform balancing act on middeck
  Description:
  Pilot Guy S. Gardner and Mission Specialist (MS) William M. Shepherd find
  the  microgravity of space a much more appealing environment for performing 
  balancing feats.  Gardner, with his arms extended, "balances" Shepherd, 
  sitting in mission specialist seat (chair), on his nose.  The astronauts
  are  wearing constant wear flight garments.  In the foreground is the
  stowed  treadmill and the open airlock hatch.  Behind the "performers" are
  sleep  restraints fastened to the starboard wall.
