  Title: STS-31 MS Sullivan exits airlock mockup during JSC WETF underwater simulation
  Description:
  STS-31 Mission Specialist (MS) Kathryn D. Sullivan, fully suited in an 
  extravehicular mobility unit (EMU) and holding a semirigid tether (SRT) and 
  ratchet caddy assembly, egresses the airlock (AL) mockup during an
  underwater  simulation in JSC's Weightless Environment Training Facility
  (WETF) Bldg 29  pool. The open AL extravehicular (EV) hatch appears in the
  foreground as  Sullivan backs out into the payload bay (PLB).  Though no
  extravehicular  activity (EVA) is planned for STS-31, two crewmembers train
  for contingencies  that would necessitate leaving the shirt sleeve
  environment of Discovery's,  Orbiter Vehicle (OV) 103's, cabin and
  performing chores with their Hubble  Space Telescope (HST) payload or
  related hardware in the PLB.
