  Description:
  With WILSON NFL football freefloating in front of them, STS-27 astronauts 
  pose on Atlantis', Orbiter Vehicle (OV) 104's, forward flight deck for 
  inflight crew portrait.  Crewmembers, wearing blue mission t-shirts, are 
  (left to right) Commander Robert L. Gibson, Mission Specialist (MS) Richard 
  M. Mullane, MS Jerry L. Ross, MS William M. Shepherd, and Pilot Guy S. 
  Gardner.  Forward flight deck overhead control panels are visible above 
  crewmembers, commanders and pilots seats in front of them, and forward 
  windows behind them.  An auto-set 35mm camera mounted on the aft flight
  deck  was used to take this photo.  The football was later presented to the 
  National Football League (NFL) at halftime of the Super Bowl in Miami.
