  Title: STS-31 MS Sullivan in EMU prepares for JSC EVA simulation in the WETF pool
  Description:
  STS-31 Mission Specialist (MS) Kathryn D. Sullivan, fully suited in an 
  extravehicular mobility unit (EMU), undergoes final preparations before
  being  lowered into the 25-ft deep pool of JSC's Weightless Environment
  Training  Facility (WETF) Bldg 29.  Once underwater, Sullivan will achieve
  a neutrally  buoyant state and will rehearse contingency extravehicular
  activity (EVA)  procedures associated with the Hubble Space Telescope (HST)
  payload.  There  are no EVAs planned for the flight aboard Discovery,
  Orbiter Vehicle (OV)  103.
