  Title: STS-31 MS McCandless, in EMU, during EVA underwater simulation in JSC's WETF
  Description:
  STS-31 Mission Specialist (MS) Bruce McCandless II, fully suited in an 
  extravehicular mobility unit (EMU), uses a wrench to release a port side 
  latch mechanism during an extravehicular activity (EVA) underwater
  simulation  in JSC's Weightless Environment Training Facility (WETF) Bldg
  29 pool.  In  the foreground on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) mockup is
  a Support System  Module (SSM) forward shell support structure.  Behind
  McCandless is the HST  mockup and a SCUBA-equipped diver.  Though no EVA is
  planned for the STS-31  mission aboard Discovery, Orbiter Vehicle (OV) 103,
  two crewmembers train for  contingencies that would necessitate leaving the
  shirt sleeve environment of  the crew cabin and performing chores with the
  HST payload or related  hardware in the payload bay (PLB).
